Solutions needed for simple issue/s new format?

Post by artificer » Sun Jul 16, 2017 11:54 am

In user control panel, just cleaned up the inbox, outbox, sent & drafts so there is nothing in any of them.
I have 29 saved transmission related messages, but I get a message that I don't understand:

1. Folder is 11% full (29 out of 255 messages stored).

What are these 255 stored messages I can't find, but wish to remove if they are not transmission related?

2. Hide my online status:
Changing this setting won’t become effective until your next visit to the board.
Yes No


This setting was not changed, but I currently show up as on line, even though YES [hide status] is highlighted.
How is this fixed please?

1: 255 is your max, you are using 29 of 255

Many thanks for your prompt advice. I was not aware of the italics being different. JG.

I currently have 2 pages of notifications. How does one delete these notifications when read/answered & no longer needed, please?
