Sorry completely non forensic but curious if anyone else has this happen.

PM's just sit in the outbox but never send? I can reply to PM's but when I try to send one it doesn't work.

PMs remain in the Outbox until read by the recipient, at which time they are moved to the Sentbox.

On one side I am sorry for your misadventure, on the other I am happy that I am not the only one that was perplexed by that.

The good news ) are that it is NOT an issue, the bad ones are that it is "by design".

I had the same issue and after some research, I found out how this is the way it works.
When you send a PM it goes straight into "Outbox".
As soon as the receiver on the other end opens it, it is moved from Outbox to Sentbox.

Once you get used to it makes sense, as you know if a sent message has been opened by the addressee, but it does seem "strange" until you find this out.

As soon as I saw I had both an out box and sent box I worked out that there was a reason for the two and what it was - must be the computer forensics guy that lurks within me )
