Messages pending to send

§1  General

The Messages tab To send box, or output tray, shows those messages that could not be sent because at the time of shipment, destination mailbox was inaccessible [1]. In this case, the messages that failed have been delivered, are momentarily deposited in the tray provided for purpose in the mailbox.

If you are using the default connection (your local area), the window display waiting messages of your mailbox, if not, will display messages waiting delivery of the area connected.

Note: remember that in the case of the messages, the default location is the one indicated by the parameter Message-box path of the initial settings. Only when this argument is empty (not clearly specify any direction), the address of the mailbox coincides with the dBase of the local area.

§2  Browsing

Figure 1.

The appearance of the window is shown in Figure 1. At right of the column that contains the date when the shipment was attempted, appears the column To, which contains the alias the addressee.

Note that the Memo column indicates the number of characters in the cell (----- if it is empty).  The actual content of this field to the line that has hotbed at the time, can be found at the bottom window (which indicates <Empty Memo> if it do not have content). At the same time, the left window of the bottom status line (purple) contains the entire field Subject, which is useful if the text is too long for current width of the column.

The window appears empty if has not been pending messages. On the contrary, appears a line for each pending message, showing the contents of its fields. The inspection of its content is the usual in Windows applications. Can be made horizontal/vertical scroll with the corresponding slide bars to inspect hidden elements. The title bars are resizable, so that you can drag them to widen. At the same time, successively clicking with the mouse on the title of any column, lists the content of the selected column in direct/inverse alphabetical order.

The context menu that appears when you click with the right mouse button on the window, includes options for Go home; Go to end; Page forward and Back page. These movements also can be made with the keyboard:

  • [Home]  Position in the first line.
  • [End]   Position on the last line
  • [Page Up]   Backward a page
  • [Page Dn]   Forward page
§3  Maintenance

The contextual menu offers the following choices:

  • This item > Delete
  • This item > Modify
  • Resend

These options are also available from the keyboard:

  • [Del]   Delete the message pointed by the cursor.
  • [Alt]+[M]  Modify the message indicated by the cursor
  • [Alt]+[T]  Resend (transmit) the message pointed by the cursor.

Note that the Modify option only allow change the subject and the body of the message. The rest of attributes, sender and addressee, may not be modified.

The resend option is only available to resend the messages of your local area (your own mailbox). You are not allowed to send pending messages of other mailboxes, even in the case of having full access rights (delete and modify) on the work area that contains them. Once forwarding has been successful, the message is automatically erased of the pending tray, and is included a copy in the sent messages tray if the corresponding switch was activated.

Although the column Date notes the date of the original delivery attempt, in case the forwarding succeed, the addressee will receive the message with the date on which the transfer actually took place. The same happen with the date of the local copy in its case.


[1]  The causes may be quite different: it may be an address of a directory nonexistent or who lacks the corresponding file zDB1; the address is in a node that is currently off-line (off or disconnected); a malfunction of the intranet, or that the user has no access privileges to that resource (write access).
