Pm Message box - DarrenS5 - 06-09-2020

I have tried to get in contact with Adminstration 

How do I make more space in my PM message box?  its it 96 now and once it gets full I cant send anything or recieve?

I now have only two messages that are in my PM box but the space bar says its still full or getting full How do I change that

Empty your trash folder ?


RE: Pm Message box - EastAngular - 05-02-2021

I assumed when I deleted messages, they were gone, but I just discovered they need emptying from the trash as well.

Darren, either you're very popular or you get a lot of hate mail.
LOL

The PM system is just as shite as it was on the old board. You have to manually select each PM you want rid of. You can’t filter them by a certain user.

Then you have to remember if you have the ‘save sent copy’ ticked, and empty that too. And finally you have to manually delete the trash folder.

So that’s potentially three lots of messages. Little wonder the system fills up.

I asked before, why can’t messages be made to time out from the Inbox like after 6 months or something?? Would make life a hell of a lot easier.

Am I the only feeling inadequate that I’m nowhere near having problems with my inbox?


RE: Pm Message box - jumbler - 06-02-2021

Another improvement would be some sort of “hard delete”, like with e-mails. That would reduce having to endlessly delete messages, like I mentioned.

I hard (shift+) delete most e-mails, only (once) click delete if I might want to read/keep it again.

You can delete an entire folder in one go?  When in the private messages screen there is an option just above the messages which displays "empty folders"


RE: Pm Message box - jumbler - 22-02-2021

True, but you have to delete each screen in succession (Inbox, Sent Items (if you have that ticked), Deleted Items. And every item from that screen you don’t need.

If the board supports it (or if it can be adjusted relatively easily to do it), I’d like to propose that messages time out of the Inbox and Deleted Items after 6 months. That means they’d just disappear, unless you move them.


RE: Pm Message box - Parsifal - 22-02-2021

I don't want my "read" (or "sent") messages to just disappear after a set amount of time.
I want to delete the ones I want to delete.


RE: Pm Message box - jumbler - 22-02-2021

But that leads to the situation I’ve just described. Being able to hard-delete (one click) messages would be better. Just like e-mails.

In any case, I’m not sure what the server limitations are.


RE: Pm Message box - ladsnet - 22-02-2021

It is what it is. It's your job to keep your box tidy.


RE: Pm Message box - jumbler - 22-02-2021

3 clicks. Versus 1 with Outlook. Dodgy


RE: Pm Message box - ladsnet - 22-02-2021

You poor thing. Do you want some finger ointment ?

LOL


RE: Pm Message box - jumbler - 23-02-2021

No, it’s not that... but it doesn’t take much imagination to see why inboxes fill up. Even technology has its limits.

Don't blame technology. Note that only very few people have posted in this thread. Only the very, very, very vocal minority is complaining. Stop sending so many PMs Tongue This is not Grindr  Cool


RE: Pm Message box - ladsnet - 23-02-2021

Indeed.
Joking aside. The PM system is designed to send the odd message to other members or for contacting the staff.

This isn't meant to be a social media platform.

What is "has reached their private message quota so your message could not be sent."


RE: Pm Message box - ladsnet - 03-11-2021

You tried to PM someone.
Their inbox is full. So your message cannot be delivered.


RE: Pm Message box - the_scouser - 06-11-2021

I use the PM system a lot to interact/perve with certain members (they know who they are.......), it's really not that difficult to empty your mailbox/trash when it gets full.
