Little help here?

Postby nwheather » Tue Apr 05, 2005 10:35 am

What the heck is my 'Outbox'?
How does it differ from my 'Sentbox'?
If a message I just sent ends up in my Outbox, does that mean it's not getting to the intended recipient?
If so, how do I get it from the Outbox to said recipient?

Oh, my poor widdle bwain...

If it's in the Outbox, it means the recipient hasn't read it yet. If it's in the Sent box, then they've read it (or at least opened it). It's actually kind of neat.

But you can't say you didnt get the message! Imagine the disaster it would cause if email had this feature!

ah, that clears that matter up, I've been wondering about it for ages, but was too lazy to actually do something to figure it out

It's in a very colorful and spirited George Carlin cheer.

I'd reprint, but it would make me blush.
