Inbox / message storage limits for standard users

Hi all there,
I wonder if I'm allowed to make a suggestion, although I am a relative newbie here :-)
Recently I started getting messages that my CF mailbox is almost full. Upon closer inspection, it seems there is a storage limit of 50 messages or so (incoming and outgoing combined). I see that for anyone wishing to have more messages, there is a pay option available - or one can start deleting old messages of course.
Now the thing is...
In this day and age when hard drives are measured in terabytes, this 50-message limit seems kind of funny.
I guess this was decided when the forum was new, many years ago when boats as well as computers were big and heavy and not for the faint-hearted.
May I suggest that the limit for standard accounts now be raised to something more substantial, like 500 messages perhaps? Or even 5000.
For comparison, Google mail offers 15 gigabytes of free storage for each user... That is about 10 million messages. Other systems are similar these days.
Thanks,
Zven

Re: Inbox / message storage limits for standard users

It's a forum message box, not an IMAP mailbox
Comparison to a Google mailbox is totally irrelevant.

Besides, there are several other good reason to upgrade to supporting member for $15 a year apart from the greatly increased message store limit.

Limits have been raised to 300.

Will we have to sign out and back in to see that? Great move, Janet. I don't know that the 50 bothered me so much until TF raised their limits and then it was suddenly more annoying.

No, that didn't work. Still shows 40. Maybe tomorrow.

Sorry I was looking at wrong number.
