I noticed I can make "custom folders" for my PM's. So in addition to the "In-box" and the "Sent-box" I made two new folders: "Mod Stuff" and "Networking Stuff." But now I don't know how to MOVE existing PM's into those two folders.

Anybody??

1. Go to your CP
2. Click List Messages on the left
3. Click the checkbox to the far right of a message you want to move
4. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list of messages; in the darker blue strip at the bottom, on the far right is a pull-down menu that says "Move to Folder."
5. Select the folder you want to move the selected PM to, and click Go.

But that function only works for stuff in the "In-box" bot not in the "Sent-box."

Right.


Why?

Why?

Because the software isn't designed to support that function; why it doesn't, I'm not sure --- I had thought it did, frankly.

Why?
My guess? Nobody asked for it in the design stage.

If you're keen to keep track of sent messages (or any others), though, you might want to use the download function: select messages, and use the drop-down menu at the lower right to download messages to your computer as TXT, CSV, or XML files. (No, there's no 'upload' feature to bring them back, but there is always CTRL-C and CTRL-V.)

Can we have a bigger capacity than 50, please? I'm tired of having to delete my fanmail before I've finished basking in the adoration of my minions. :D

I just took a "sent" mesage and forwarded it to myself. And THAT popped it into the "in" box. :D
