In my message inbox I see no way to archive messages. The list is getting longer and is getting confusing. Is there a way to archive them?

Are you talking about private messages between you and other members? The forums? or in your personal emails in your email program?

If you mean the private messages on the site as far as I know the answer is no.....the system stores ALL your PM's both incoming and outgoing from day 1.....I can see back as far as 2010 and it would have been even more but I am pretty sure older ones got lost when the site was upgraded a while back. It displays them starting from newest to oldest. Hard to imagine how that is confusing.

Yes, I meant messages from prospective buyers in response to my ads. As the answer seems to be no then I'll save them another way then delete them. Some of us get confused with unneeded verbage. Thanks for your reply.

I dont sell or purchase using online PM's.....I do all of that via emails. When an ad is responded to by clicking on the "respond to ad" button an email is sent, when that email is responded to it goes directly to the person in question via email instead of the site....Though I do believe there is an option to use the PM system since the site upgrade I prefer direct emails. Once the transaction is over I usually kill the emails.....
