even though I deleted some...
there's a lower mailbox limit if you're not (no-longer?) a full member so if you were just over the limit as a full member, you'll be way over the limit when you're membership runs out..
the limit is 500 messages for a full member - i think it's 100 for a non full member (could a non paid up member confirm that please? )
Not heard about this
Does this mean we have to purge our inbox and sent items and keep the total below 500 ??
yep. not sure about outgoing PMs but people sending PMs to you will get a message along the lines of "joe blogs cannot receve your message as their inbox is full"
My first thought was that living in a house full of females that's the LAST thing I want!!
I renewed membership but still no luck on the pms
What happens when you try to send one and how many PMs are in your inbox and 'sent messages'?
if you go into the PM page, at the top is a bar graph and a sentence saying :
"You have xxx messages stored, of a total yyy allowed. (Empty Folder)"
what does yours say for the xxx and yyy bits?
I just sent you two PM's they appear to have sent with out hiccup. Can you confirm whether or not they arrived?
recieved but cant reply, and it still says box is fill even though I deleted a lot
Ok, you haven't given figures but I assume on the meter at the top of your inbox the total number of messages stored is less then the limit. If this is the case the only thing I can suggest is that you delete your cookies and clear your cache. If this doesn't work an admin will need to look at your account.
How do I do all that??
What browser are you using?
Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc...
Tools > Internet Options > General > Browsing History > Delete > Cookies.
tried that, lets see how it looks in the morning
Nope, no luck
Ok, I'll drop Ed a PM and ask him to take a look at your account. I can't imagine whats causing this.
Private messages on BCUK are just that, Private ..... so i dont have access to users inboxes or stats....
So.... if you could just answer a couple of questions, we'll see if we can work it out
1. How many messages do you have in your 'inbox'?
(At the top in your folder controls box, on the private messages page, it should say something like 'Inbox contains 4 messages')
2. How many private messages are you allowed according to the system?
(Again in the same box, next line down, it should say something like 'You have 46 messages stored, of a total 1500 allowed.')
3. How many messages do you have in you 'sent items'?
(Again in the same box there is a drop down menu where you can change from your inbox to your sent items)
Let me know, and we'll see what we can find
