Default PM message storage

Like many other forumites who have been here a long time, I've traded a lot of PMs over the years. I've reached the point where I have a lot that I'd like to keep, and I'm bumping up against the 200 message limit. This is after going through and having a clear-out several times over the years!

Given that limit hasn't changed since Bob started the forum, as far as I remember, is there any chance of increasing it?

Default Re: PM message storage

That's a Mike Greene question, but you could always copy messages out into a text file on your computer for storage of of the BDF server. Might be easier and quicker to search in that file too.

Shouldn't be a problem, I'll have a look at bumping the limit up.

[a few minutes later...]

Limit increased to 500
