It used to be 100, but now it's 25?

Yeah, mine shows "Inbox 238% full (50 max - 119 used)" I guess supporters get a double inbox storage amount but since the default got reset to 25, it's only 50 instead of 200. I'd imagine they'll fix this shortly.
It doesn't appear that there's any way to export messages either, or am I just not seeing the way to do it?
How do you delete messages? I'm not sure if I missed it?
I kept selecting "deselect" without reading the choice. Annoying. My inbox is 360% full!
I will explain this later as well, but...
Select all, or which ever ones you want to "delete". Then choose "leave conversation".
PMs are more like group chats, or private threads now. You can leave the Conversation, while 2 other people choose to continue talking. Leaving it reduces your inbox limits.
Now, the inbox limits are FUBAR'd right now, because every single back and forth, and every single sent item you made in the old system - is listed as it's own conversation. That is an unfortunate result of how the conversion process worked.
If you cleared out, and went back and forth with 1 person 100 times, that would only be counted as 1 conversation.
Each post in a conversation counts towards a "Conversation Message" limit as well, which works like the old limits. Max 100/300 etc.
Default Limits as of now:
25 Total Conversations
100 Total Conversation Messages (within those 25 Convos)
50 Total Conversations
300 Total Conversation Messages (within those 50 Convos)
Now, since most people are in a rough spot due to the import quirks - may bump both those up. I'd highly suggest cleaning out old inbox stuff.
There is no bulk export / download feature available anymore.
Good info, lots of folks will need us this methinks.
I have upped the default storage amounts to:
100 Total Conversations
500 Total Conversation Messages (within those 100 Convos)
250 Total Conversations
1000 Total Conversation Messages (within those 250 Convos)
If you are still having issues sound off in the relaunch thread.
If there was a way to merge conversations (the ones that were back-and-forth PMs on the same topic, in the old system), I think that would alleviate a lot of storage issues.
500 Total Conversations
2000 Total Conversation Messages (within those 500 Convos)
1000 Total Conversations
3000 Total Conversation Messages (within those 1000 Convos)
