We currently have a policy of cleaning up stale PM messages that have not had any activity for more than 1 year. One year expiration limit is a good balance as PM feature is intended only to be a short-term messaging system.
The next version of the PM system (v3.0), is currently under development and will be introduced later this year will resolve some of the issues with the current system.
- Unread message subjects are now in bold type to distinguish from read messages. Our last update broke this feature.
- Removed “Delete” option from outbox since it does not work as intended.
