Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but a quick search didn't show a previous topic for this.

My MA email outbox is hoarding messages and not sending them through. It doesn't do this for all messages, but only a few random ones. Resending the messages doesn't solve the problem. It seems to be for the same users on repeated attempts, so I'm not sure if that signifies a problem at their end (inbox full for example).

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't use DM very much on here, but if I'm not mistaken, they stay in the Outbox while they are unread. When the receiver of the message reads it, it goes to Sent.

Wow, really? I've never seen another mail system that does that. Still, it would make sense since those are the ones that I don't get replies to...

Aye, that's exactly how it works. The ones in the outbox are unread, the ones in sent are read.

Also convenient because you can still edit or delete the ones in the outbox before the receiver reads them.

Thanks to both of you for clearing that up.

If you have more in your outbox than usual it's probably because the notification email ended up in people's spam folder.
