I forget checking the "Save a copy in my outbox" option a lot when sending PMs, but I want to save all outgoing PMs to keep track of a lot of things. Is there a way to keep it enabled by default? If not, could this please be implemented? Thank you very much in advance Smiley

Actually I think it would be useful if the forum software would enable that automatically upon account creation, although that could lead to ballooning disk space.

Compared to all the forums posts, PMs shouldn't require significant disk space.

True, I suppose so.

SUCH a good feature.  I'm glad it's possible, even if not the default setting.

True, I suppose so.

My sent PM's are slightly less than a tenth of my posts.  While small, I wouldn't quite call that insignificant.

Is it necessary to add another database entry to keep the PM in the outbox? I don't know how SMF works, but I assume a smart implementation will use no additional disk space.

Good point.  Probably just a few flags (since each user can "delete" pms individually, which really just hides them from that user).

If you made it the default, you'd need to set up a system which alerted users when their PM box was getting close to the limit. Someone's inbox being constantly full is more annoying than them not having PMs enabled and it leads to a shitload of "empty your inbox" threads.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Well, I've used forums where there is a limit on the number of PMs, and frankly it is downright annoying. I'm not sure if there is a limit in the current system, but I haven't hit it and I keep all my communications.

If there was going to be a limit, I would like a way to export PMs to a .csv dump file, and possibly even have the export signed by the forum for safekeeping.

Also on a slightly off-topic-ish tangent, I also use a feature of the current software extensively - that of Labels. They can be used as folders by adding a label and then removing the inbox label. So for instance, you could set up labels for "processed" or "hardware sales", and then add one or more labels to a message. Once you remove the Inbox label, it disappears out of the Inbox, but remains accessible in the other label sections. Unfortunately, this can't be done with outgoing sent messages.

I've looked into setting that option by default, but it wasn't obvious to me how to do it. It looks like it might be difficult.

There is no PM limit.

I don't see this. Are you sure it's in SMF 1.1.x?
