    Savable PM's

    Issue Number:
    The ability to save a PM as text on one's computer would be nice for when we have to clean out our PM, and so helps for keeping our inbox clean.

    Open a text file and copy the message into it.  Not that hard.  Tongue out

    Hmmm, I wonder if it would be easier to have an option of forwarding the actual message to an email account.

    Well, I was thinking a little more along the lines of convenience.

    Also, out of sight, out of mind applies here (If it's not available, people don't always think to do it manually).

    I could probably provide something that would accommodate your request Corjay.  It's just text - I could probably place it all in a text file and give it to you for you to do whatever you want with.  RPG.NET has that feature.  It lets you empty your inbox to a text file so you can keep your inbox light and empty.

    Here's my idea:

    Have a button called "Archive Mailbox" that creates a text file full of PMs, deleting them from your box, and placing the text file in your personal files.  Then you can go to your personal files and do with them what you please.  I'm not interested in coding the added complexity of giving the ability to select which files to archive.  Just one button to archive your entire mailbox into a text file.  Would that be ok?

    Text is all I'm requesting, and cleaning the inbox is the purpose, so that's perfect.
