I have a number of PMs in my mailbox - not as many as I'm sure some of you have, but enough to get me concerned about if and/or when are the mailboxes purged. Some forums I belong to purge all PM messages above a certain amount. And some, I think using Invision PowerBoard, have a stated limit of messages you can keep in your mailbox, but they do allow you to archive your messages by selecting them with a checkmark and then download them to your PC in .csv format.

So I guess I have two questions:

  • Is there a maximum number of PMs you can have in your PM mailbox here at DC?


  • Is there a download or export feature in the SMC forum software that can be "turned on"?

Thanks!

Yes, this worries me too- I have an aging PM from mouser about FTP information, and I cannot lose it.

Will PMs ever be deleted/wiped?

The mod might be nice, mouser. Like I said, I probably have less PMs than most of the long-timers here. Just would hate to open the mailbox one day and find they had all been purged!  Is there a limit, mouser?

Thanks!

There is no limit and we don't ever intend on deleting anything.
(I have about 7000 messages and none have been deleted).

ps.
unless you turn off notifications, you should also receive an email with a copy of any message you receive -- so that's another way to keep a backup of all your incoming messages.

Cool!  Well, that resolves that for me - and the email idea is a great one. I usually delete the notification emails after clicking the links in them. Now I guess I'll save the ones I want.

Thanks mouser.
