Is there any way to speed up the sending of PMs? They're often for more than 24h in my outbox before going out to the recipient.

Just got your test PM - thanks. The last PM I wanted to send was in the outbox for 3 days until I deleted it. It's not the first time that a message can't be sent or takes days to go out.

I also replied to your PM. Let's if you'll get it...

phpbb messaging system can be a bit confusing.

"...The outbox is where messages go before they are read by the person receiving the pm. Once it has been read by the recipient the pm will be moved to the sent box. this allows you to edit or delete the message before it has been read if need be..."

Thanks for the heads up Herbert! That's the reason. Sorry for bugging you with that, but maybe it'll help some users ;)

Cheers,
Thomas

No worries. It is pretty unusual but now we all know.
