I have two messages that said they have been sent, but their still in my Outbox? Does it take time for them to be fully sent?

Are you asking about in the forum's Private Message system or in Thunderbird? If the former, the messages will stay in your Outbox until the recipient accesses their PM Inbox.

Is there a way I can mark this as solved or are you the only one with that permission?

The message gets read when the recipient views the sent PM. Once it is read it will not be in your Outbox.

Clearly, you didn't read all the previous messages! ;)

Clearly you did not understand why I posted.

My point is the recipient needs to actually view your sent message as the recipient just looking in the Inbox section of their PM section alone as Dan said does not mark unread messages in their Inbox as read.

But if this really was about Thunderbird then Dan should have moved it.
