    PM issues

    Here's what I learned this morning.... I think it's right....Admin correct me if there's a better way.

    You can set up a few more 'folders' in your inbox...like an email site does.

    Click on Notifications/Inbox then look at the left side under My Messages. Click EditFolders. Add new named folders. I made one for MISC2SAVE

    Now to move PMs.
    Back to Notifications/Inbox. Put a check in the PM you want to move. click Selected Messages. Check Move to Folder. Click Proceed. Pick folder (use arrow if necessary). Click Move Item. TaDa!

    I believe we can only have 500 PMs total. After you save the ones you want to save, you can delete the rest in a couple of clicks.
    Go to Notifications/Inbox. Scroll down towards the middle Folder Controls area. Click Empty Folder. It'll ask you again if you really want to delete all. Click Yes, if you want to delete all.

    Hope this is right, easiest way and works for you.

    Thanks, that info is great, but I still want to know how to delete more than 50 at a time.  Anyone know?

    Editted to say, never mind....I figured it out. When you get to your PM boxes, scroll down to Edit Folders on the left hand side.
    When you click on that.....your folders will show on the right side. Click on "Sent messages", then "Empty folder", then "Yes" to delete permanently. Do the same for your Inbox. Be sure to download all as text into Notepad if you want to keep the information though.
    May I always be the person my pets think I am..

    PM's

    There is a "quick reply" box at the bottom, or there is also a "Reply" just after the PM. Scroll down. :-)

    OK, I got a message that I need to delete PM's. I followed your directions and created a folder to put the ones I want to keep, but can't figure out how to move them there. You say to click 'selected messages' but I can't find that. where is it ? I feel real stupid right now. Not loving this new site

    I have bunches of PMs over the last week regarding some fabrics I sold. I can't seem to find the member name of the person who I sent messages too. I see the member name of people who have PMd me.

    do you know what I mean? I'm trying to find messages sent to a certain member with what she wanted, what I had left and how much the payment was to be. Even looking thru all of them doesn't tell me who the member is that I'm looking for.

    yikes.

    The recommended download for Private Messages is csv, if you do not have Excel, try using the text option.

    This is an issue we're aware of, and looking into. We should have the usernames of your sent PM recipients in place soon.

    Red face Check your Private Message boxes

    I have send several private messages today and received error messages saying that my message could not go through because the recipient's box was full. If we want to use the private message function of the board we all need to check and clear out old stuff.

    Thanks for the tip. I will ensure mine is cleared out.

    Maybe I am just tired, but can someone please explain to me how to delete individual private messages. I can find a button that will let me delete them all, but can not figure out how to delete just some of them. Thank-you ever so much if you can help me.

    There is a box at the top of each day that tells you how many messages are there for that day. Click the box beside the number of messages and a check mark will appear by each message. If you want to save any of those messages, just un-click those. Go to the bottom of the page on the right. Click on Blue box and it will give you the option to delete, file etc.

    Thank-you...thank-you...I knew there had to be a way, but just couldn't come up with it on my own. I now have a pretty well cleaned out private message box.

    Patrice, with all due respect, I put this thread in the Main area because everyone needs to know that they need to clean out their in boxes. People are not going to see it here unless they are looking for help with the board. I don't believe this is the correct place to put a notice that everyone needs to know because it won't be seen by all.

    Perhaps you figured it out already...sorry I didn't get on line yesterday...
    Click selected messages means to put a 'check' in the little boxes to the right of the PM.

    Server would be the same size- it would be the 'space' on the server and its not cheap by no means..

    Yes, you can sort by member. At your list of PM's, at the title bar above the start, there appears Title/Sender. These are interactive. Click on Sender and they will be sorted by member name. You can easily reorder the date by clicking on Date to the right.
