Many of the PMs I recieved under the old system I wish to save. There's two ways to achieve this:

1) Beg and plead Steve to keep these old messages on his server at his expense based merely on your whim (this hasn't proven too effective for some strange reason)

2) Go to your old PMs (look for the link right below the logo), use your browser's appropriate menu to view the HTML source, and then save that code as an HTML file on your hard drive. You'll lose the graphics by doing this (unless you take the time to download them, too), but you'll have your old messages saved until you get rid of them!

Or you can (in IE) use the "File > Save as" menu to save the page and graphics. The links won't all work right, but you'll have the full page.

Another alternative: Right-click the page, click select all, open your favorite text editor and paste. That gets you only the text on the page.
