    I just tested it.
    WHILE Logged in, I went to "Messages", at the Top by the Bell, Clicked "Inbox", then Clicked the Box next to the one I want gone, then clicked "Delete" and it went to Trash, I then went a step farther and went to "Trash", clicked that same PM there, hit "Delete" and it was Permanently Deleted, not that it HAS to be done though.

    UPDATE: I thought OK maybe Lou Clicked on the PM to Open it, and then tried to Delete it.
    So I tried it that way, and it also works fine here.

        Usually, when these kind of actions work or don't work differently for different Members, it has something to do with their Browser Brand, the settings in it, or a Spam or Ad Blocker Program.
        I use Firefox.

        Just go to the "Forum Q&A" Forum and ask Clark what it MIGHT be.

              Lou Van Anne , yes, it's not as intuitive as it used to be.

              I have the capability to clear your PM's from my control panel, but it's an all-or-nothing proposition. If you have anything store that you want to save, copy or print it, and let me know, and I will clear the box for you.

                Clark can correct or confirm but, I believe messages that have been sent to "TRASH" but not permanently deleted are still counted in your mail box cache, and will limit the messages you can store.

                  That is correct. And even when you do that, they may not be permanently "gone" - if the person on the other end of the conversation still has a copy, then that message still exists and is counted against your quota.

                  I've significantly raised the amount of PM storage across the board to help with this; the amount allowed is now triple what it used to be, but it's still a weird system

                      Clark-
                      That particular provision is well beyond weird -- it falls somewhere between absurd and ridiculous.

                      (But thanks for trying to ameliorate the problem.)
