    Default Stored messages

    I realise that this has probably been raised several times over the years, but perhaps this can be a timely reminder. Our individual message inboxes are capped at (I think) 100 messages. If you are quite active in back-channel communication that inbox can fill up really fast. Obviously this does not apply to me as much as the rest of you. a reminder

    Anyway, there is as far as I know no alert to make a person aware that their inbox is full, often coming down to a member putting a reminder on a thread post instead!

    So, a couple of things.

    1. Is it worth trying to ask Eric to increase the cap on messages?
    2. Could we all have a New Year's purge of old messages? (start the year fresh as it were)

    Thanks

    There is an alert. It is located on your PM landing page under the heading "Folder Controls." Just below your list of PM threads.
    It tells you how many messages you have stored......... and reminds you that you are only allowed 100 of them.

    I find the only way to manage this is to periodically install tapatalk on a mobile device, go in and tidy up mailboxes, and then uninstall it again.

    Clunky, but functional.

    Tapatalk still only lets you delete fairly recent Inbox messages. I have 10 pages worth going back to 2014 despite the fact that I delete all of those in my Inbox very regularly and it tells me I have zero messages in my Inbox. No-one seems to be aware that they need to also delete their Sent messages, and that doesn't need Tapatalk. You can do it easily. The message system is so poor I've given up thinking about it.

    Default Re: Stored messages

    At least on the web interface, I can only find a way to wholesale delete my inbox although I can pick and choose on my outbox.

    Am I understanding correctly that I can selectively delete my inbox in Tapatalk? I'm getting full and there's a lot such as completed transactions I can delete, but don't want to get rid of current ongoing private discussions or of transactions that are either still in process or discussion...

    I suspect the way forward, with regard to private discussions or transactions is to exchange personal email addresses and go from there. The system on here suck donkey balls, as I believe the expression has it.

    You can selectively delete current Inbox messages if you use Tapatalk.
