deleting PMs

Postby JohnW » 10 Aug 2019, 10:07pm

Apparently my PM folder is full.
I don't know how to delete PMs from my folder, and cannot find any instructions.
Please tell me, fully and clearly, how to delete individual messages, and how to 'delete all'.
Thank you.

Mark them in the boxes on the right then select delete marked from the pull down menu at the bottom

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

Alternatively you can save them in your "Saved messages" folder although this too will fill up in time. Your sent messages are deleted automatically one by one when you go over the folder limit.

. . . . and I recommend that you read this topic, or more specifically my post starting "I've made a discovery !"

It should tell you how to set the parameters to auto-delete the oldest PMs to make room for the new ones.
. . . . which would be a better default . . . .
