Delete some of the messages! Maybe ALL of them!

If for some reason the folder being full locks up your messages so you CAN NOT delete them, then post again so an Admin can fix it. Some of them just have to go. Obviously you can't communicate by PM, so it has to be here.

If you actually NEED to save them, it looks like there are options to
"Export this view" : "Export as CSV" or "Export as CSV (Excel)" or "Export as XML".

That gives me documents in a strange format, but the message is still there. Maybe a dedicated email program will put them in proper format? I am no email expert.

Also, under "Rules, folders & settings" there are options for what to do "If folder is full", including "Delete oldest messages".

Pictures of WHERE you click to manually delete messages, in case it is not obvious:

In Private messages, at the "Rules, folders & settings" tab, for "If folder is full:" the three options are:
  • Delete oldest messages
  • Move to folder: Inbox
  • Do not accept new messages (New messages will be held back until enough space is available)
The last one is the default value. So yes, the messages do not go through if the folder is full.

My guess is that FLM does not have the server space of a multi-trillion-dollar international corporation like Google, so it can not afford to allow people to save all their private messages forever like Gmail permits you to do for email. Besides, Google reads your emails to know what products to target-market at you! That is how they pay for the server space. Maybe we should do the same at FLM? :mrgreen:
