    why is my message inbox full with only 70 messages?

    hi folks - im having a bit of bother with my private messages always telling me its full

    i started with 130 messages about a week ago and have deleted about 60 messages but every few replies i receive i get notices that my inbox is full and i have to delete more messages

    i thought we could store 100 messages -

    I think it's been changed. I can only store 50 messages now, which was quite a nightmare when we were organising co-ops. I know you can d/l the file, which I do, but it's very difficult to find that address you've lost in what becomes lines and lines of text. It sucks. I'm asking for a refund!

    If I am to type anything lengthy in a forum I always type it up in notepad first, then copy and paste into the post or PM.........

    Timeout setting is usually 20 mins ... to avoid being timed out in these circumstances, leave the "Activity Stream" open (or the "Who's Online" screen) ... these callback to the server every minute and should allow you to avoid being timed out.

    Edit: the "Activity Stream" page may not work due to the way it calls back, but the "Who's Online" definitely works.
