    There is a way of deleting all messages in a given folder (inbox, sent messages, etc.) at once. I have recently downloaded and subsequently deleted all of them to make space. See the image (you need to click on that ‘Edit folders’ bar to get the rest of the options):

    Ah, indeed - those links will do the same as those that I posted above. They're remarkably well-hidden where they are, though!

    Subtle brag thread :facepalm:
    :lol: I genuinely needed help with it. Any bragging was unintentional and possibly Freudian. :blush:

    Of course. You had your problem solved AND revealed to everyone on TSR that you are a very popular person. Totally unintended.

    What makes you think they were all friendly messages? :confused:

    Popular doesn't necessarily mean well-liked. Just look at Mrs Brown's Boys.

    I'm really having trouble with this.

    I deleted lots of mesgs from both inbox and sent - they are both on less than 400. However, people trying to PM me are still getting the full inbox error message.

    I do have 68 pages of VMs still, could they be interfering?

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    Visitor messages shouldn't count towards the PM limit. :nah:

    I've just tried sending a PM to you and it seemed to go through okay - did you receive it?

    I got it! :excited: However, it would not let me reply, the 'exceeded quota' message came up when I tried to reply to you. :sad:

    Odd that yours came through - maybe because you have superior Moddish powers?? :cool:

    Perhaps, if I were a mod any longer

    How many messages do you have in each folder?

    Right now, my Inbox has 351, Unread is 0, Sent is 400 and Tracked is 0.

    Is the non-sub limit 500 in total for all boxes or 500 per box?

    I couldn't say for certain where the limit lies, but I do know that it's a total across all folders - that will be your issue.
