private message folder size

Maybe I've missed this somewhere, but is there a way to get a bigger inbox and sent-box?

Do I need to donate some amount, or just ask, or is it set to (IMO, the very limited) 50 of each for everyone?

Not trying to be rude, just curious (and a little frustrated).

Thanks.

You can create your own custom subfolders within each of those to categorize your messages however you want. Each subfolder can hold 50.

No, you don't have to donate to be able to do this, but donations are always welcome to help with site expenses.

Problem solved!

As an IT guy I have to say what I tell my users.. your inbox is not a file cabinet, but I see a lot of folks treating their inboxes as such. I tell them: if you dont need an email delete it. if you need it because it has an address of someone you are sending locks to, then sure save it for a while or copy it to a word document on your computer, but most internet forums have to back up everything nightly and usually cant give each user 7 Gigs of space like Gmail can afford to do.

also not trying to be rude, just letting you know my view from the IT department perspective... (and I dont work for this forum, so this is purely my commentary, not policy here)
