Post by pondrocket » Sat Feb 17, 2018 1:54 pm

Is there a settings area to limit the number of pm's an account can receive?

You can limit the inbox size but that doesn't stop how many they get.
What's the bigger picture of what you're trying to do?

I have different level of users from paying to non paying. Just need to limit the number of pm's they can actually store and view.

I'm not sure what you mean by that? No where to limit that unless I'm missing something.

Check out this section of the phpBB User Guide, https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... oups_edit/
User Guide on Group Attributes wrote:GROUP PRIVATE MESSAGE LIMIT PER FOLDER
This setting overrides the per-user folder message limit. A value of "0" means the user default limit will be used. See the section on user preferences for more information about private message settings.
We generally use this setting to allow Admins/Moderators to have a higher PM limit than Registered Users.
