Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

2017-10-31_172059.jpg

For goodness sake - I wrote them

They won't change to read unless they are opened either

Yes I know I can sort it but why should I need to

It does seem a bit silly but it isn't a major issue to select 'Mark all as read'.

@Oldjim

Sorry, wasn't a criticism of your post but rather just confirming what you said.

What is there to sort? You've sent 1,892 messages which are unread, what do you expect to happen?

Re: Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

Since I sent them I couldn't have sent them unless I read them

Re: Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

The unread count is number of recipients who haven't read your PM.

I just tried opening a couple of them and the unread count hasn't changed

Re: Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

It doesn't matter if you open them, it's the recipient opening them that will lower the count.
It's like a confirmation that the message you have sent has been read by the recipient.

Re: Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

When I look at my sent PMs, some of them have bold titles and others normal. I assume the ones with bold titles are the ones not read by the recipient.

Re: Unread Messages - Sent Items in PM

Checking our case portal with Lithium, this bug with the counter has been fixed in a software update which will be coming out at some point soon (I havent received the details of when this will happen yet).
