It will be. They might not even notice it till they see this thread.

Well, this did not work out!

Almost all of my archieved messages older that one year got deleted!

Not me. A few days ago, I archived some messages from 2007, and they're still there.

On Sunday, I had 11 pages of archived PMs. After the purge, only 2 pages remain. There are a total of 34 PMs left, 19 of which are from the last year, and 15 seemingly radomly taken from older years.

But don't worry, I distrust this kind of activities, so as a precaution I also saved all important PMs on my private computer! 8)


And by the way, there is an Archive Box on the Inbox table, but not on the SentBox table.

Are we not supposed to archive our sent PMs? :?

Montana Matt wrote:Hmmm, so far you're the only one reporting that issue. I've double and triple-checked the script and I'm nearly 100% certain that it won't delete anything in the Archive Box.


Don't worry, as I said I have copies on my private computer. But it would be interesting to hear if anyone else had this experience.

I did the archiving on Saturday and Sunday morning, so it didn't coincide with the purging.
