Any way to send a message to a particular user to free up PM space?

    I was in a PM conversation with a user and needed to send a clarifying PM, but his PM box is full. Will an admin send a PM beyond the limit on my behalf to clean up some PM's?

    I was kinda hoping I could drop an e-mail or some other form than a public post that he/she may or may not see.

    Feature request:
    When PM store is full, a notification happens at refresh (like the notification you get when you have a new message).

    When my in-box is full I get an email notification giving me the forum member's screen name and informing me that the forum member attempted to send me a private message. I then clean out my in-box and send an email to the forum member apologizing and suggesting that they send me another message.

    I never get this notification. Perhaps I need to enable something in my preferences.

    Thanks Larry, it appears the recipient did clean out a few messages. :)

    You don't get the notification unless you get private messages, brianman. A lot of private messages. It's okay. I'll send you some. -hugs-

    Ouch.

    I get private messages. Not always friendly, but I get them. Usually it's mods telling me I did something wrong, in a nice polite way.

    You left yourself open for that one. :)

    Probably because of the bug bonnie says I can't repro. ;)
