Blocking Private Messages from specific users - A how to guide.

Postby gaz » 12 Jan 2020, 7:22pm

User control panel > Private messages > Rules, folders and settings > Add New Rule.

Adding rules is a step by step process, choosing settings in the "If" box and selecting "Next" at each stage to create them, e.g. If "Sender" "is*" "<insert name here>" "delete message".

Easier to do step by step than it is to describe.

If your notifications are set to e-mail you when there is a PM then you'll still get an e-mail saying who it was from. I can't recall whether the forum notifications icon lights up.

You'll be unable to read or recover any PM set to auto-delete. I haven't tried it on PMs from moderators or admin :wink: .

*Can be set to "is foe" and used in conjunction with that list.
