Sleuth Mail Changes

You've probably noticed that Sleuth Mail now has checkboxes by the individual messages for en-mass saving/deleting. Since there is a box at the top of the list to check all, I've removed the "delete all" button everybody hated so much. If you have suggestions for tweaks to how this should work, feel free to post them here.

There is a lot of detritus that needs clearing in the mail database tables, so I am planning to delete all non-saved messages that are more than three months old tomorrow. So, if you have a message in your inbox that is older than that, and you can't stnad to see it go, here is you warning to save it now.

I will plan on making old message clearing a repeating part of the daily aging script, so going forward, you have three months to save messages from your inbox before they disappear entirely.

Sleuth Strong!

I have an idea, since it's only us grumpy old detectives who have enormous mailboxes why don't we just ask Ben to delete them manually.

Ben, if you'll delete all my inbox except for the last 3 days I'll be grateful. Sent items as well if that'll help clear the backlog.

You can delete mine too, if it helps.

I have rolled back this change for now, so we are back to the "delete all" button, with no more checkboxes.

There seem to be a few complicating factors that kept those changes from working on some browsers if users have a lot of messages in their inboxes. I need to add paging to the mail boxes in order to handle checkboxes.

I won't be clearing out old unsaved messages until the checkboxes work, so that is on hold as well.

Good idea Admin! i cleared all, it sure does save a lot of load time.
some pages is probably a good idea. Personally i would also like it bigger, maybe longer in height.

p.s. off-topic
some of us really are waiting for the coats to work in TH's, and what about your plans of storing them?
A leader board for challenge points? just curious...
