I could not send a PM today because I had reached my limit. I deleted only 20, and then I used a filter to delete quickly from 2007 to 2010. Now I see only 3 pages instead of the 11 had before deletion, and only 163 messages. I am still seeing "you have 728 in your folder and you are allowed 750".
Why am I seeing 728 and not 163? Did those messages get filtered out permanently but that didn't get recorded?
