    Odd, did this just come about? My unread icon on e-mail at work popped off yesterday afternoon showing 2800 some unread e-mails.

    I'm obviously nowhere nearly as popular as you.

      It’s a common problem likely caused by the outdated software that runs this board. There is nothing I can do about it on this end and a check of your file would show the correct number to me.

      To fix it, save all messages as a text file, or however you want to do it, and then delete all messages from both the in and out boxes. That should fix it, at least until it happens again.

        I thought that the total of in and out PM messages on this BBS was limited to 50.

        I just checked the PM messages and its working fine so I have no problems with the VP BBS software in that regard or at all.

        Perhaps the BBS is not at fault at all.

            That's about right for me as I have no measurable personality at all.

            Negativity is a way of life.

            And I try hard to make sure that it stays that way!!

                You probably have a PM which contains no actual message. Delete it and things should return to normal. The empty message may turn up a few times before all is good.

                  I did post a PM message to BlackForest through this forum last week. I didn't receive a response but was unsure if BlackForest had elected to not respond.

                  If you would like for me to resend my message, let me know, otherwise I will respect your decision not to respond.

                    Oh, that means you have one message you haven't read. Mine shows 65532 unread, and there are none that I haven't read.
                    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                          Perhaps they were BF's "admirers" and the messages may be their "Valantine's Day" "greetings" - or what-ever.

                          I am quite envious as I never get any Valentine's Day messages - can't see why. Is there something I should know??

                            I did have a message with nothing written in the body. I deleted it and all is well now. I am a little depressed. I thought everyone loved me.
