Deleting PMs

I'm coming toward my limit of PMs.

As far as I can see there's the option of deleting everything or deleting them one (or ten, I suppose) at a time.

Is there an option to, for example, delete all messages over x days/months old?

Re: Deleting PMs

there's a filter, so you can probably select the ones you don't want by setting the date range, then once you've got them click the Select All check box (the one above the first row) then delete...

Re: Deleting PMs

I believe you can do 50 at a time....select the box in the top right corner...and don't forget to delete the sent messages too as they count as well. (now where's my blobbie? )

Re: Deleting PMs

With the filter at the bottom right you can 'Delete All' or 'Delete selected'. You can also download specific messages to text etc. if you wish.

Re: Deleting PMs

I hadn't noticed that there were 50 messages per page rather than 10. Thank you.

So I sorted in reverse order and deleted a page at a time.

Still, I'd rather do it in a couple of clicks rather than the 30 or so that it took.

you can also disable PMs and enable email which is a bit easier to manage.

Not popular, just disorganised and lazy.

But doesn't that involve passing my email address to randoms?

They've been moved to a special place.*




*The Really Ace Special Hole. Or something. Not too sure - they just use an acronym.

Just use a hammer on the database. As someone appears to be doing right now...
