Outbox vs. sent messages

In my control panel I see I have a Sent Messages section as well as Outbox (5). To me it seems like those message haven’t been sent but I think they have. Dunno if this is a phpBB feature but was just curious to know the difference.

Outbox messages haven’t been picked up be the recipient yet.

I think sent messages are ones that have been opened by the recipient. If they’re still in your outbox it means whoever you sent it to hasn’t bothered to open it, which means they probably hate you and might in fact soon begin to stalk you online.

Cool, thanks for the info.

Lol. One of the messages that hasn’t been opened yet was from the good old days of the Edison Chen scandal.
