Default Return Receipt?

If I send a private message, do I really have to request a return receipt? There doesn't seem to be any way to avoid it.

There is: just click on Cancel when the receipt popup appears. That will send you message normally.

Illogical? Counter-intuitive? You bet. This is one of the silly aspects of vBulletin (fortunately, there are not too many).

Default Cancel sends anyway!

Cancel does send anyway. I don't suppose anyone could change "Cancel" to "Continue" or some other logical word?

I think what we found is this is not in the vBulletin code. vBulletin is making a call, and the language it is calling just works this way. I wish I could remember the details, or at least find them now, but I can't.

I can’t figure out where that language is. Maybe someday we will happen across it while looking for something else — but it is not in the logical places.

For now, we can refer people to this thread, and then they will know the trick.

I just remembered something. I think the discussion I read said that this is a javascript call to the browser, and that the choice of "cancel" is being provided by the browser. Of course, using a different method would avoid calling this choice, but it is not something we can readily change.

That’s good to know. Thanks.
