How to clear my unread PM's?

Post by dogman dan » Aug 16, 2012 6:08 am

Is there a way to find an unread PM that is buried in my PM's. I missed two messages at least a year ago, and never could find them despite opening pages of old messages.

Can I delete some pages of really old ones? Can it be done to have a different color on an unread message?

how many pages do you have ?

You can " Mark All " at the bottom of the current page, to delete or move to a " saves messages " folder one page at a time.. instead of individually selecting each message one at a time..

It looks like you might be able to do something that at least helps narrow it down.

There's a message rules section.

Make a rule "If message status--> Unanswer --> move to folder "unanswered.")

Edit. Nevermind. My method won't work. There's only an option for "Forwarded" or "Answered" I suppose maybe you can move all of your "answered" to a folder other than inbox.

Thanks Ypedal, I thought I'd have to click em all one by one. That will do, I'll clear em up to this spring.

Done. Now any unread messages are new, I'm down to one page of old messages. Might keep it that way.

On a related topic:

When you send a PM, it will stay in your Outbox until the recipient reads the message.
Once it is read, it will move to your Sent messages folder.
This way you can tell if a message has been read.
