    Hi Paul-

    I PM'ed another TB'er about a classified ad and he had to post in the thread as a response because he got a message that my inbox was full. I checked and it said (at the time, I cleared out a little space since then) that I only had 90 messages out of 500 allowed.

    Not a huge deal, but I figgered you might be interested to know.

    I had to edit a post last night and I got the box full sending to the offender. Anyway for Mods to override the limit?


    Superduck: How many "sent" PMs do you have saved?

    Like, 20. I typically don't save my sent PM's. I had 90 messages in my box total, including sent items.

    I don't think I've ever had more than 5 in my box. I must not be as popular. I do clean mine out almost immediately after I read and respond.

    Perhaps the user mixed up and PM'ed someone else instead? There are no known such bugs with VBulletin (our forum software)... I just sent a PM to you that appears to have been sent fine...

    Sorry, not possible. If the user does not have email contact enabled and their PM box bounces, don't worry about it - it's the user's responsibility to make themselves available to communication if they want to know why they've been edited. If you need to warn a user of a pending ban etc., and can't make contact, let me know and I can put you through.

    Maybe he accidentally sent a PM to SuperChuck. :D
