I've had one sitting there unsent since March. I sent a new one earlier today to @strummsix today and now it's stuck there, too. And after I sold my FYD preamp last month to a buyer responding to my ad on TGP, I later learned that a person here who wanted to buy it and had responded first lost out because his PM to me here also got stuck in his Outbox.

I appreciate your hypothesis but am afraid it's not the case here.

My PM to him sent March 3rd is still sitting in my outbox undelivered. He probably thinks to this day I never responded to his incoming PM about Mu-Tron's phaser: :cry:

Hi again, Derek. I did a search on TGP. I assume this is the thread you referenced. The problems in the thread appear to be limited to Mu-Tron's phaser and Jim S eventually added to the thread, "Rand called me today and said they fixed the unit. They had a bad run of pots. Fixed ASAP !" So I'm leaning again towards the Micro-Tron IV.

Jon:

I received a notice that you sent me message yesterday or this morning about an MC50. Today I went looking for it and found no such message in my in-box!

Things are getting strange!

Please re-send.

UPDATE!!!!!

D'ooooh! I just realized it was on reverb, not rukind.

In the words of Emily Litella, "never mind"

Bill, tgo

Bingo. This is the case here. Also the board has limitations on number of messages and you'll need to delete them.

Replied to your MC50 ad for a friend- might be stuck in my outbox. Do you see it?
Thanks
Got it, thanks.

Which BTW leads me to question further whether perhaps the bottleneck is at the addressees' in-boxes, not my outbox!

Thanks for your inquiry. I replied to it in my for sale thread. And now, as a test, I'll send you a quick PM reply, too. Let me know, please, if you receive it!

In fact, as of this morning, I haven't yet yet read them (I'll do so next) so the hypothesis that the addressee reading a message is the event that moves it out of the sender's Outbox appears to be incorrect.

I'm beginning to feel that collapsing the wave function by observing the particle in quantum mechanics is relatively simple compared to comprehending forum software quirks!
