I have 4 messages queued!


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Queued messages (in your Outbox) just means that the recipient hasn't physically clicked on the message in his inbox.   If a recipient has a full inbox, it will return an error message saying that.

Doesn't seem to work that way, Scott. (Just tested it again, myself).

If the mailbox is full, a new email will result in the deletion of the oldest PM from the recipient's inbox, but doesn't remove it from the sender's outbox (as far as I can tell).
Thus, Frank still sees four messages o/s whereas I can only see two remaining, because the others have been "lost". (Happens quite a bit when I have a 15-20 PM blitz and don't tidy-up any important messages in time :()

Any chance of increasing the mailbox size, please, if the mechanics cannot be altered?

Hmmm, I guess it isn't working the way I thought it would.  I've increased the inbox size slightly, but it was already set at 50 messages -- time to clear out the inbox, Harami.  :)

But that was only 50 messages.... *snuffles*
Thank you for the increase, Scott!
(And good to have you back somewhat more "full time", too ;))

Yeah, I know I'm slow at the best of times.
Trouble with a lot of these is that I've kept 10-15 message threads relating to particular sales/deals which I'm loathe to clear out until things have been squared-off. Can become very easy to "lose" messages amongst these and have them chopped by the limit before I notice (or even without me noticing).
Guess I need to copy/paste those all into Word, or something. *shrugs* need a lazy/sleeping cougar avvy, instead...:oops:

David,

Do you have your Acaeum profile set to receive notification of Private Messages by email?  If you do, the email contains the entire content of the PM (minus those cute emotes  :D  )

It's a good way to hang onto messages once you have to start deleting them from the acaeum.

i was just going to say that BTB. david what i do - i get a lot of PMs sometimes believe it or not (:D) and what i have started doing is, cos i get a copy via e-mail, i keep hold of that if i need it, in a "acaeum" box in my inbox and i delete the mail off the acaeum. thus doesnt cause any problems.

however i did notice the other day, that if i read my e-mail and not the acaeum mail, it sits in the senders outbox until i have done so.

this is obviously the problem you are having as you only "got 2 of frank's 4" .... ?

Yep; and around 200 others in the inbox, PM folder, etc. :?
(Plus will have to check the other thousand or so in the email spam folder, "just in case"... *sighs*).

aside: I have nearly a dozen "unread" PMs to various people in my outbox here that haven't yet been looked at... *nudges back*


Thanks, y'all! :)


(p.s. Why nearly 200 page views on this thread, though? :P)
