    How to keep your Private Message box clean.

    It's important that you keep your Private Message Mailbox as empty as possible. You can only have a set amount of total messages in your Inbox, Sent Items box and Message Tracking box combined. Once you reach that combined number of messages, you will no longer be able to receive private messages until you remove some. To clean out your Private Message boxes:

    1. Click on the user cp button at the top of any of the forum screens

    2, Click on Private Messages at the far right of the screen.

    3. Use the Jump to folder: pull-down menu to switch between Inbox, Sent Items and Message Tracking.

    4. Click on the check-box to the right of each message you want to delete then hit the delete button at the bottom. You can click on the message to read it first.

    5. If you want to delete all the messages in a box, just click on the check-box on the top line of the list and hit delete.

    6. In the "Message Tracking" box, you can choose either Read by Recipient or Unread by Recipient. They are deleted the same way, except that you hit the end tracking button instead of delete.

    A max of 10. If you have sent messages or tracking messages stored, this maximum will be decreased. The total has to add up to 10 or less.

    Hey Birdsfan, how bout passin' along an idea of upping the total number of pm's to 20. That sure would be nice? Yes, some folks would still not clean out their boxes but for those of us that do, it would be a nice extention to the paid services offered us by the good people at BGP.com.

    Hey, Guru, thanks for upping the max pm's to 20. It's really easy to get over the limit with only 10 and this will help.

    Is this a premium only available to paid members?

    It should be. Membership should have it's privaleges.

    Without hacking the software (which can cause a lot of problems) it has to be the same for everyone.

    Membership does have it's perks like the photos and the extra contests. I am sure I will think of more things down the road.
