Export PM's?

I understand that there needs to be a limit on how many PMs the server will keep; I am now close to the limit and really don't want to go through them individually to figure out which ones i might want to keep.

Is there a way to just dump (export) all my PMs into a text or CSV file and then erase them from the server?

since it is just a mysql database, it should be possible to do that.. no?

Yes - if you select the messages and then select the "Selected messages" drop down, there's an option to download as CSV, text, or XML

Just a pain that you can only select 50 at once.

Re: Export PM's?

Thanks for the info - I've now got a folder under My Documents, full of 'Thread Moved' and 'Post Deleted'.

Re: Export PM's?

There is also a vBulletin PM Reader that might be useful to some.
