    As I mentioned in my other post, other people trying to message me (Gary) get a message that my inbox is full and also this is the message I keep getting when I try to send a PM, even though my inbox and sent box are both empty:

    "You have reached your stored private message quota of 70 topics you have 84 topics saved combined in your private message folders. Please delete some of your existing topics."

    What do I need to do?! What doe sit mean by delete 'topics?' Cheers anyone

      How do I get to that screen, How? That’s not what I get when I pick a name from the member’s list.

        You don't need to go to the Members List
        Just go to the person within a post or thread and follow the instructions in my last post.

        I'll have to ask the tech guy at VBulletin about the issue with private messages concerning 'delete topics' when I get home. I'm not about to mess around with the settings as it may affect everyone else.

          Is it spell-checker that’s coming up with ‘destructions’ and ‘insurrections’, or have we been hacked by the Proud Boys?

          I still get a different screen, but it allows me to send messages to you at least. It’s just Debs I can’t send to. I don’t send many PMs so I don’t know if I might have problems sending to others.

            I've tried both ways, clicking on the username under the Avatar and getting the screen How mentions and writing a PM from there but that brings up the same message as when I message using the member list.
            ..oh well.

              Debs:

              I sent VBulletin an email outlining the issue.

              Hopefully, they'll be able to help.

              The reason I don't want to try correcting it is that it may wind up leading to other issues. Better letting the professionals handle it.

                BTW, my avatar is a recently restored picture of my dad, aged 17, in 1943. He lied about his age to join the Royal Navy and didn’t come out until 1947.

                    Update:

                    I adjusted the settings in the control panel. I raised the default settings so that the number of messages that members can store ( sent and received) is now 750.



                    The maximum number of recipients to a p.m is still 5.

                      I also asked whether this new software would allow us to download our private messages as the previous software did....but it doesn't.

                      Sorry.
