I increased the limit to 200, I think that works better. Eventhough I have plenty of space, doesn't mean I shouldn't set limits (doesn't mean I have unlimited space). Not something I'm worried about, but 200 is plenty for more people, and for most people, old PMs aren't important to save. But if you need to save them all, you can save them easily on to your computer using a feature from the forum.
To save your private messages, first check the private messages you want to save (there's a check all box). There might be more than 1 page of private messages, so if you want to save them all, make sure you save those pages as well. After you have done that, at the bottom of the messages list, there's a drop down box where you can: Move to Folder, Delete, Marked as Read, etc... select Download as Text, and then those selected messages will all be in one text file downloaded onto your computer. You can also save as XML and CSV (I find that Text and XML are the best ones to use).
