Attached to this message is an update I made to the External Phorummail module (v2.1.5).

This version adds the ability to moderate all imported emails by marking them as unapproved messages.

Thanks, Robert, you reminded me of a wish I'd have for the leadership. It'd be great if edited and empty messages could be automatically removed from the database.

Say what? Are you talking a separate functionality here or is this something that really has a sound relation to the External Phorummail module? It does not sound as such, so if yes, you should clarify what you want exactly.

I was under the impression that Robert wanted to withdraw his message after the first edit. I admit, I could also have opened a new thread. The idea is to give a user the chance to remove a mis-posted message (no replies) by editing and removing its content.

feel free to build a cronjob or script for that but that really has nothing to do with Roberts work or External Phorummail at all.

Thanks, Robert! I know it. It's not installed on this Phorum. I could have used it occasionally, for example when you send a help request and you find the bug minutes later.

You were looking for a solution for your forums, it seemed. Robert helped you very well, by providing a link to a usable module. You respond by telling that you know that module and then switch seamlessly to bugging about these forums not having that module installed. Weird segway, really.

We are not installing that module on these forums. If you really want to delete one of your messages (I can imagine you do; I have felt the urge on more than one occasion too), then there is always the "Report" link, where you can ask a moderator to do so.

I have not looked for a solution for my forums since it is already in place. I made this remark since I noticed that there might be also other people who would benefit from this option on this Phorum. No bugging, no weirdness, just a friendly suggestion. And with regards to the rest I guess I will take the high road with my weird but practical segway.

After watching this pander on and wondering what korsakov was smokin', I finally figured it out. He said...

My post is edited twice. The first time I uploaded a version I called 2.1.3, only to realize that the module had been updated twice already since the last time I downloaded it. So I edited my post to say something along the lines of "I was running an older version. Delete this post... I will add my changes to the most current module and re-upload". Then after I download Thomas latest version and added my changes, edit #2 above was to upload version 2.1.5

So korsakov was under the correct impression.

With that over, might I suggest that the External Phorummail version I uploaded (2.1.5) replaces the one in the topic starter (2.1.4), to avoid confusion and have the most current version at the top of the list?
