I have just been looking at my private messages and there was one showing red in the outbox. When I clicked on it, it said that the message had been sent, but it was not in the sent messages. Can someone explain this to me please as I am a bit mystified. If it said it was sent, then why is it still in the outbox. Or perhaps it hasn't gone!

I think this might mean that it has not been received or read by the person you sent it to, but am not sure. Hopefully Jon Bauckham will know.

Sorry for the delayed response to your query. I answered this in a previous thread:

Basically, messages only move from 'outbox' to 'sent' once the recipient has opened it.

Hope that helps!
