Can someone explain to me how / where to go to find out how I can save PM's. I have gotten several messages that my PM account is FULL but sure would like to save some of the responses.

Is there anywhere this can be done?

My inbox show 500 allowed, if you don't want to delete some of them copy and paste some of them to your email, to give you more space.

Do you realize that you can selectively delete the ones you don't want and thus reduce the number being stored?

Click on "Private Messages" top right.

Select the box on the far right of each message (or the one at the top will do the lot). Scroll down to "Display Options". Above that line it says "move to folder". Change that to "save as text". Click "Go".
It will open Notepad or similar and you can save it as a file.
Not perfect but readable.

Thanks to all that responded. I had saved some threads to file but then never could find the file. I did however find a way for my liking to save what I want and that is Book Mark each of the threads I want to save and can even divide them into categories.
Again thanks to all!
