If it doesn't exist already, it would be a welcome feature. Also, we can only select the PMs that are on the page in front of us, can't select all of them and can't increase the number of messages per page.
There is no way that I know of to search PMs. I have multiple boxes filled to 1000.
The new site will work exactly the same, for now. Better messaging is one of the reasons we're upgrading to the latest forum software. We've been stuck running an old version because of our custom theme and the feedback module.
This has prevented us from upgrading until now. Our developer built the new site and used extensions to make it look and feel as similar to this site as possible. BS & RC made donations to the feedback author and he worked with us to upgrade the feedback and make sure it worked the way we wanted.
Once we're on the new site, we'll use the test site to try out new features, like better messaging. One step at a time.
