Bug Private MessagingRead/Unread Status

  1. Oct 25, 2009 #1
    When I send a PM, after a few days of no response I like to check to see of the person got my PM. So I look at the little 'piece of paper' icon that indicates read or unread.

    It always shows 'read' status. Even the instant after I have sent the message.

    I use Safari by the way.

    I think that is to show if you read your own message? :) Message tracking is for seeing if the recipient has read the message.

    You can request a read receipt when you send a PM.

    Wow. I didn't realise that.
