    Default Unwanted private messages

    I keep getting PM's about once every other day from someone in Viet Nam. Ho do I block this sender? I tried sending him/her messages to either write in English or stop sending messages to no avail. Thanks in advance.

    wbranch, Here's how. Click on box next to the offending message, scroll down and click "Select Messages" then click "Delete" then click "Proceed". That should do it. Never answer them. Jim

    It seems like the same person over and over, same title, etc. any way to restrict new users from the pm ability until they reach a threshold of posts?

    The person sending the garbled PMs is *NOT* a member of this forum. He/She has figured out a way to send PMs from outside the forum. I delete two or three each week.

    I got that one today. Lots of question marks in the message.

    From a friend that I asked about this. He said that the board would probably need an expensive upgrade to stop this. With the lack of "paying" sponsors" that probably will not happen.
    I contacted several sponsors and they were not paying support to FAOL.

    Just got an email from an unknown. Thanks for explaining how to delete unwanted messages in "Inbox"
