How many PM's can we have before our mailbox is full?
« on: February 19, 2012, 01:31:28 PM »
Just wondering what our PM limit is?

Just so I know when to do housekeeping.

Thanks
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

honestly, im not sure yet. ive had (including sent items) 300 at one time, but i try to keep it well under that. we are still working very hard behind the scenes trying to figure a better PM system for us to use.

we will keep you posted, but for now id say to try to keep them under 200 :)

I've been scouring the settings and can't find a limit. But you do have the ability to download your PM's in .xml format.

Like Red said, try to limit them to 200 and if you need to save them, you can download them and then delete them from the forum. We are probably a long way from outgrowing our storage space at this early stage, but it will inevitably happen one day.

Ok, after a little more poking around I found the controls for maximum PMs. They are limited to 200 PMs before you will need to delete them to make more room. But, as mentioned before you have the option to download them as an .xml file before deleting so if there is something you want to save you won't have to lose it when you clear out old PMs to make room.

200 should last even the most prolific writers at least a day before needing to be cleared out.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

And yet who followed whom into this thread? 8)

I don't think I have ever used "whom" before.

200 is plenty, just didn't want to stuff the box full in case someone wanted to get in touch with me about something important.

I can't actually come up with any examples of something important just now.
