Saving Private Messages.
« on: July 29, 2012, 02:11:37 PM »
Saving Private Messages (not a sequel to Saving Private Ryan)! ;D

There is now a feature added in the Private Messages area where you are able to save individual messages, or all of your PM's to your computer.  This is very handy if you are selling items, and wish to keep the addresses off of the forum.

To do so, click My Messages.  On the left hand side you will see 'Save all PMs in Inbox' and 'Save all PMs in Sent box'.  It may take a minute to collate all of your data, but it will eventually show up as a browser page. Right click the page and Save As.

You can also go to an individual message and save it by clicking the button under it, or tick a few messages and save them.

I have just saved both sent and received PM's, I take it I can now delete these from the forum since I have the archives?

Just asking before I do it  ;D

cheers John.

Double check by opening the files on your computer.  If everything is there then feel free to delete them.  :)
