    Exceeding allowable messages

    We all have a 75 message limit and sometimes members hit that limit and no more can be received. Aside from trying Email people and telling them (if they are set up for Email from TF), is there some sort of message that gets sent to a member that they hit their limit? Or do they just have to realize on their own or being told on a forum topic?

    There is not. I hate the limits. We used to not have limits But it keeps me from having 15 pages of crap.

    The first place people should look to delete messages is their "Sent Messages" folder.

    The default is to put a copy of any messages sent to this folder. Just uncheck the option before sending a private message unless you actually want a copy.

    yes, the person with a full inbox does get a email (if their email is valid) Lets say Jimscott trys to message Clint and Clint's box is full...

    Subject: Inbox full at Terra Forums Carnivorous Plant Discussions
    Dear Clint,
    Jimscott has just tried to send you a private message. However, your private messages box on Terra Forums Carnivorous Plant Discussions has reached the specified quota. In order to receive further private messages, you must delete some messages. Please visit this page to do so:
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/private.php
    So it even tells you who you missed a message from. So when you clear your box, you can write and ask them what's up. Of course, you can always watch the little meter on the top of your PM to make sure you're never full.

    Check your email spam folder.

    Then you don't have a valid email for your account, or have my email in your spam... (or not checking the right account?) I know for fact that email is received. Someone replied to it June 29th and that's how I knew what it said... Before that, I wouldn't have known it was sent either.

    I know you get a message when your inbox is full. I get them all the time.
