How do I Archive Private Messages?

Hi. My private mailbox is getting full. I don't want to get rid of the private messages that I have sent or received, but if archiving them will prevent my PM mailbox from becoming overloaded, can someone explain to me how I can archive these messages so that I can retrieve them if necessary. Thanks.

I don't believe there is an archive mechanism for PM's. Maybe an admin can confirm this.

You can't archive your private messages on the forum's server. However, you can export your PMs to your hard drive and keep them forever. Go to your inbox, click the little check box on the right of each message you want to keep, scroll to the bottom of the page, select "download as TEXT", and click "Go".
