Post Private message filters
I've lately seen a message displayed, when I open my inbox folder. It says:
Code:
One private message had been removed due to private message filters.


I've also noticed that I hit the PM limit, it says:
Code:
Page 1 of 3
    [ 150/150 Messages (100%) ]


It seems that whenever I recieve a new PM, an old (the oldest?) one is removed. Is that correct? Or if not, what are these filters and exactly happens in my inbox?

Yes, after 150 PMs your mailbox will be full, so the last message will be automatically deleted. So if your last PMs are important, then you should delete some, which were posted a bit earlier.

Herbal is right, that seem to be better option than second option for this (after filling the box the user couldn't receive/send PMs until he would delete some, which would cause him to be in-contactable for other users for a time).

But just to add to the 150 limit - yes, you can store 150 inbox and 150 sent messages, but out of that you can create few more folders in the PM settings (4 additional folders IIRC?), each can store 150 messages too - that can be alternative solution for you, if you want to archive more your messages. ;)

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that option. I've archived the PMs and freed up inbox space, it should suffice for some time at least. :P

And you can define what happens to PMs, when you reach the 150 limit per folder, so it's quite customizable. :bg:

I also regconised it when I regconised that the oldest messages were deleted. Then I made a folder "Ivo" where all his messages go to :)
