    Unhappy How to DELETE PM messages ?

    I received a message that I am close to 90% in my message inbox. Is asking me to archive or delete.


    I have no issues deleting some of my messages... But HOW???

    I cannot seem to find a way... no checkboxes, or delete/archive button anywhere.


    HELP!!!



    Thanks,


    C.

    You only have the option to delete all of them, but they don't actually disappear altogether.

    Scroll down and click Empty Folder but if you want to download some first you can. When you click 'Empty Folder' the count goes down, but you can still see them. I'm not sure why it's like that either.

    Actually, there is another option.. which I just found out.. and tested and is working.

    I installed TAPATALK on my mobile.. and selected only the messages I wanted to delete. It works like a charm.

    Sometimes the only thing the app does right

    Also inbox and sent are the same message pool limit

    Please can I just make sure I have got this right. So I install an App called Tapatalk on my mobile, then select only the messages, I want to delete and it will work? Will they still be on My Profile on my PC? Or will they be deleted from there too?

    Yes.. once you install the app, sign in and delete any of your messages, they will also be deleted from your profile on your PC.
    The app allows us to delete individual messages, which is not the case for the desktop version. On the desktop vesion you are only presented with the option of deleting ALL messages at once no way of picking those you wish to keep..

    @Cyber6 Thank you again for the tip..

    I was wondering about this myself. I do not want to delete all, just some. I do not have a mobile to instal Tapatalk on.

    I can never find PMs on TapaTalk either. Any help that anyone can provide with this would be much appreciated. Thank you!
    Beware of oblique conclusions.

    I don't even know if Tapatalk exists for my phone. I'm probably the only person I know who doesn't have an iPhone. Mine is an Android

    Tapatalk is available on Android, as well.

    I'm in the same boat. No mobile device. I'm in the middle of transactions so I can't delete all of them at the moment, but I can't receive more pm's till it's cleared. Catch 22. Seems like it might be a good idea to see if we can get a more robust pm system.

    If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you can download them all as various file types.

    However, I deleted all of mine and despite my Inbox saying it is now empty, I can still see and read all of my previous messages. Two pages worth. Some of the messages don't show all of the replies, but the original messages are all still there.

    I think the inbox and sent box are deleted independently I can see all of my replys as I only deleted my inbox.
    It took me a little while to realise that I have each message as an email notification so the inbox is not too important.

    I deleted Inbox and Sent items separately. I can still see 2 pages of messages in my Inbox, despite it being "empty"
