I've got a notification of a PM from Simon but when I click on it I get:-

You are not authorised to read private messages that are on hold.

Just worked out that its because my inbox is full. But I deleted stuff from 2 years ago and there should be room now. How long before I can read the message?

I never leave read messages in the folder , it's possible for anyone who can access the database to download them .
Print off or save to docs . the important ones by all means .
