    Remember - Keep Your Inbox Tidy!

    Did you know that you can only have 100 messages in your PM inbox and your sentbox? If this fills up you will not be able to recieve and new PMs sent to you.

    Tip: Regularly delete old PMs from your inbox and your sentbox!

    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I like to keep those PMs thanking me for things, but I don't have anywhere near 100 PMs saved. I didn't know I had to pay any attention to the sentbox. Should I go in there and delete all the old messages?

    :)

    The sentbox is useful only if you wish to refer back to old messages that you have sent.

    Once any of your boxes has been filled, there will be no more additions to it; if your inbox is full you will get no new PMs; if your sentbox is full you will save no more outgoing mail messages.

    Update:

    Messages will stay in your outbox until the recipient logs in again to receive them. Just because they remain in your outbox, it does not necessarily mean their inbox is full.

    Just a little something I discovered today.
