PM interface: Some suggestions

Since PMs are a Premium feature, might I humbly suggest a few improvements...

1.) It REALLY needs to be easier to navigate. It's very troublesome to be bounced back to your Inbox after you delete something in another folder, for example. It might also be nice to have "quick page" on PMs; like, the screen would show your most recent 10 or 20 PMs only, and then you could have a "next page" option. This would be helpful for those of us with, like, hundreds of PMs.

2.) Speaking of hundreds of PMs, could we please get PM downloading enabled? I could really clear my box out if I had a way to archive my PMs on my own computer.

3.) Could we have a "cc" feature on PMs? I ask this because I just sent basically the same PM to two people, and I thought, "Wow, this would be simpler if I just had a cc box!"

If I am understanding what you are saying, we sort of have this option already - at the top where you enter the user name, you can send a message to more than one person if you add a coma after the name. To send a PM to you and SIcy, in the line I would put:

Sicy, pax

I guess the only problem is, people who get the message don't know who else got it. LMPA sent me a message that started "Hi Girls..." but I wasn't sure who else she sent it to.

If this is all 'duh', I apologize

All of these suggestions are great, especially the download option.

1) Not going to happen. The majority of people dont have hundreds of PMs stored. Only FIVE people have more than 1000 stored (current limit is 1500). The only reason the limit was raised from 750 was because someone begged In reality, PMs are just that 'private messages' and mostly, I imagine, really arent looked at very often once they are initially read. Expanding the limit, and functionality in this manner would only encourage people to be lazy and not delete old, and most likely useless messages. Now, for those that do packrat EVERYTHING, you'll be able to waste your own harddisk space.....

2) PM Download is now working for the first time in like 3 yrs. Enjoy it

3) You're able to select multiple people per PM by choosing 'PM to buddies' on the Private Messaging section, or 'Send PM to Buddies' on your buddy list.
