How do I delete a conversation?

You will need to periodically delete old messages. Each type of membership has a limit to the number of private conversations one can have in their folders. If you exceed this number, you will not be able to send or receive new messages until you delete some old ones.

To delete a message...

How do I know if I receive/have a message to be read?

If you have messages waiting to be read in your inbox, you will be notified via a notification either by mail or alert that will display at the top of the page. It will be visible on any page that you land.

Yes, as long as they are quality posts. You can not post a response like " Good" or "I agree" in 15 posts and have the admins unlock your PM feature. They need to be at least a sentence each.
