Is there any way to copy all PM for archival to a different location?

Hi David,
The only way I've found is to :
1. Go to your PM screen
2  Each of Inbox, Sentbox, Outbox and Savebox can be saved individually
3. Mark all of the messages in the selected box, or just mark those to be saved
4. Right-click the "Save Marked" box and select 'Save As'
5. Select where you want the messages to be saved and click the Save button
6. Go to the selected location - there will be a file named Private Messaging.html and a folder named Private Messaging Files - rename them as appropriate
7. Repeat for each box to be saved.

As the saves are in html format, they will appear on-screen as they do on the website, except that the URL box will show your local drive address.

Hope this helps!  Obviously, there may be other, better/easier ways to accomplish the same result!
