My PM's folder is 100% full. I can delete old messages, but there are many important PMs and it is too slow and boring just to copy-paste them to *.txt on hard drive.
Is it possible to add a "Save PM in HTML file" future? (Invision Power Board can it)

In CVS there is also a patch to set different size of inbox for admin and/or moderators

I don't really personally see any reason for the above suggested feature, but I would like to be able to search my own private messages. On my forum I have somewhere around 1500-2000 of them, and its annoying to flip pages and use browser search =)

So one large file with all the messages in it?

Yes, something like that. In chronological order. Probably combining messages from "Inbox" and "Send" together for better viewing of conversation tree.

I would like to suggest to hide the "Download Message Dump" link if the user has no messages. Or in case this is not possible maybe show a notice on the message dump page that there were no messages (and not just a blank page).

I have tried to improve the message dump template. I made a patch that should improve the layout of the dump and make it HTML compliant. The case that a user has no messages is not considered in my patch, because I don't know how to do it.

The patch was applied and I've added code to hide the dump button when it is not applicable.

Thank you. But when there are no messages it looks like as if there is a part of the table missing (I have attached a screenshot).

I just saw that there is a new arrangement of the buttons in the lower right corner. Maybe it looks better if they would be shown in one single line like before?

I think it makes the right side look too busy, too many controls in one place.

So you prefer the layout like it is shown in the screenshot I attached above (which is current CVS)?

I prefer to current layout, I think keeping the buttons separate reduces confusion.
