    Is there a way to archive PMs or can this only be achieved by downloading text files?

    Go to your User CP, look under Private Messages, Edit folders.

    As far as I know, you have a limited space for holding your PM's. It'll stop accepting them after a while and you'll have to clean them out.

    If you wanted to save them, I can only assume you could copy/paste them as a .docx for yourself.

    Thanks, Mittimer. A warning PM is received and mentions the option of archiving, but it seems that you can only do this by saving them as text files.

    Time to do some housekeeping, methinks.
