    I do! I mean how much space can it take up on the server to increase to like 100 or something? 70 is far too limiting IMO, I get about 20-25 a week! Please increase it! :(

    HaHa MjM I voted against you. :p

    but really the current limit is just fine for regular use, if anyone should be complaining about this it should be the mods, god only knows how many each one of them must recieve in a single day. All I can say to you is if you have that many check your Inbox more often.

    Mods get a limit of 150. My total generally hovers between 140 and 150 (147 at the moment). I deleted a whole lot about a week ago - reduced it to about 100. :ack:

    @MjM - I suggest you decide what you want to keep, what you want to delete, and consider just downloading some.

    Seems like plenty to me.

    Currently 1/150. All the important ones/things that have been dealt with have been downloaded.

    I think 70 is fine. It takes me months to fill it up. I haven't had to empty it in quite a while.

    How 'bout 80? That'd be great. And yes I did save and delete all the good ones but somehow new ones just keep appearing:ack:....

    The most I've ever had in my box at a time is 5.

    I'll sell you the space in my box for another 20...

    Remember you can select PMs to save as text file or XML file too... It's a good way to backup PMs.

    I could use a bit more room I any given week I recieve about 25 PMs and it can be rather tough to keep up with especially when I have to keep all the Eat Poop You Cat ones.

    And if you get close to the limit, just bump it up another thousand!

    An extra 30 would be very useful. Ive started a couple of pbems recently, and ive ran out of space and have missed some important messages.
