    Have you tried again? Seems to me in the middle of a major transition such as a server move they are trying very hard not loose files, which could easily explain it.

    At the bottom of the PM page, you will see a box with something like, "move to folder..." Just export to a text file and send to Wikileaks.

    to delete all your pm's. I like the humor, how about some walk thru help.

    But remember Loosewire. By downloading your PMs. You may trigger some alarms in one of NSA computers. And then they will start to keep an eye on you. You may see strange vans in your vicinity. Men in black with sunglasses even if it is no sun. And perhaps hear strange clicking sounds in your phone. It is perhaps best to keep it on the AAC server:rolleyes:

    Hello,

    You can select the messages with the tick-boxes behind every message.
    Then go to the pull-box and select download as text.
    See also the picture of jpanhalt in post #5.
    Afther you saved the messages you can select delete, and the selected messages will be deleted.

    This needs to be done for both inbox and outbox.

    Hello,

    When you go to the PM-box, you can select the files you want to download:

    [​IMG]

    Then you select the "download as TEXT" in the dropdown box and press go:

    [​IMG]

    Then a dialog box appears then select download file:

    [​IMG]

    I always add -inbox for the inbox file and -outbox for the outbox file.

    Then select "delete" in the dropdown box and press go:
    (be sure the text file is downloaded correctly).

    [​IMG]

    The same can be done for the outbox.

    Bertus

    PS I use the dutch version of firefox.
