    Is there an alert icon to tell people their PM boxes are full?

    Good question.

    I also wonder if when your PM inbox gets full, there are unpredictable results. Ex: Yesterday afternoon I sent a PM to somone, and it wound up in someone else's PM inbox. Could be I was half-asleep and just screwed up....

    When you enter your inbox and it is full you should receive a notice that it is full. As a matter of good practice everyone should try to keep their inboxes relatively empty. If you have information you want to keep that is in your PM box, copy and paste it into an email to yourself.

    AllChookUp, I don't want to say you were half-asleep, but I can't see any way that having a full PM box would cause a PM from one person to be randomly shot to another... that's just odd. [​IMG]

    Go ahead and say it, Nifty - I must have been half-asleep. I don't see how form a technology standpoint that would happen either. Oh well.

    I guess somebody that never deleted anything from their box would have 75 messages.

    Hi there nifty. I have a question that sorta off topic and on topic. Is there anyway you can put check boxes or a delete all (or is there a delete all?). It is kind of time consuming deleting old emails.

    Hypno, there is a Delete Multiple Messages option. Look in the lower left corner of your screen while in the message area.
