Storing PMs and PM Limits?

Didn’t know where else to put this, but this seems to be the right area.

For PMs, there is a limit to how many you can have. Mine is set to 50 messages. So, I just periodically delete them. However, I just noticed that there seems to be a way to create sub folders?

If I were to create a folder, and move messages from my Inbox, would it still be limited to 50 messages, or can you store more in a personal folder and still have a 50 message capacity for your Inbox?

I think no matter where the message is located, you're only allowed 50. That's when you see the meter change colors.

50 is the limit for ALL messages. So, if you want to keep your PM's I suggest creating a word document that you save somewhere else. Its a bit cumbersome, but it gets the job done.

Ok, thanks!

That's actually good news because I would have felt really stupid if I had deleted them all for no reason!

Also included in the 50 is your sent messages, so if you clean those out then it will buy you some more space.

Since most exchanges of PMs are responses with the previous messages included, you only have to save the last message in the string to have a compete record.
