Default Private Message Folder

I have a private message folder, and I would like to create another one, but I cannot figure out how to create a new folder. I could file a hardware message in my AOL folder, but somehow that doesn't appeal to me.

Am I limited to 50 private messages overall, regardless of folder? I think so, but you can confirm it.

The limit is 100 private messages per member.

To create a new folder, go to the last item in the Private Messages panel in your User CP. Type in the name you want to use, and it should appear in your list.

Default Private Messages

I have created two new folders, and transferred two inbox messages to one of the new folders.

Can I transfer sent messages to a different folder? I don't see how to do that.

The heading still says I am limited to 50 messages, and I have 32 messages, so I don't follow your statement that a member is limited to 100 private messages. Maybe I am missing something.

I do not see how you can move messages around either. Will look into it.

As for the total allowed, I think you are right; I misread something when I said it was 100 messages. Sorry — we will change it to 100 shortly.

I'm having the same problem - it's quite awkward not to be able to keep received messages and replies to them together in the same folder. It would be great if the system could be adapted to allow that!

Now your limit should be 100. Let me know if not. Thanks.

Yes, my limit is now 100. Thank you for the change. Let us know if you find out how to save sent messages in a different folder.

To save them in a different folder, just select that folder before saving.

To move them, have a feeling it cannot be done, but I am looking into it.

Assuming you have created private message folders ("Edit Folders" under "Private Messages") select the messages to move, leave "Move to Folder..." as the selection and click the "Go" button taking you to a screen where you select the destination folder.

Oh, good grief! What’s wrong with me!?

Sorry guys, Gary knows. Do what he says, and you will be happy. (You select items by clicking on the box at the right, and choose the action from the drop-down at the bottom of the screen.)

Thanks, Gary.
