  • Private Message Total Count?

    Hopefully a quick question (and answer?) that I may have missed elsewhere...

    When setting up the "Number of Private Messages" a particular Usergroup may have, is that number comprised of:

    1) Their inbox only?
    2) Inbox + sentbox?

    i.e. if #PMs limit for Usergroup A is set to 50. Would that mean that members of Usergroup A can have 50 PMs in their inbox (and any number of sent), or a mix, adding up the limit set (e.g. 35 PMs in inbox and 15 in sentbox)?

    Any clarification much appreciated!

    That is the total number of PMs in their inbox, any custom PM folders, and the stuff in their sent PM box.

      Thank you!

      Out of further interest. If you're a board owner, what do you tend to set your PM limits at?

        I have mine set at 200, I think, for regular users. But many sites have it set at 500 or 1000. I think it just depends.

            Hopefully a quick supplementary question on PM counts.

            - if a member belongs to a usergroup that has an allowance of say 200 PMs, but then is moved to a usergroup which only allows 150 PMs - do they retain the 200 PMs they may have or are some automatically deleted (e.g. oldest/newest) to fit the new allocation restriction?

              They retain the 200. However, if they are over the 150, then they won't be able to actually send or receive any PMs until they delete a bunch of PMs until they are down below 150.

                Usually on my sites, admins and owners get 1500 messages
                That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

                    Actually, I *believe* if people are not saving the PM being sent to their sent folder, they can send if their PM box is full. Or in this case, overfull.

                      My defaults pretty much are 250 PM's for regular members (If they want more, they can either request it, or get a premium account, depending which one i have setup)

                      but admins, and mods need the space for support and etc, so i give them a good 10 thousand (If they need more, they get it, but so far its never been requested)
                      Jut a random internet person.

                      A message to all illegal users!

                          Where in the control panel do I find this setting? I have filled my PM box in less than 4 days with about 50 messages in it?

                            You can set that under Usergroups > Usergroup Manager > Edit Usergroup > Private Message Permissions > Maximum Stored Messages
