Do invitations / adding people (when they are offline) work for anyone?

I’ve noticed that when using two accounts with a virtual machine, the invitation from one account isn’t actually being received by the other? I have to first message the other account when they are online to be able to see them and save have them as a contact. Thanks in advance!

Since the last server update, I’m not 100% sure if this is necessary, but my personal rule is to add someone, wait a few minutes (usually five) for the server to do a sync of the contact store, and then sign out and back in. When Messenger was originally in operation, this is was part of the procedure for restoring a broken contact relationship.

The server is far more sluggish these days however, so your mileage may vary. I haven’t been adding many people these days myself.

Thanks for the response! Turns out that alert notifications are off by default for when people add you to their contacts (or at least for me). I will definitely keep your advice in mind though!
