Hi wingedplummer, I have moved your Post to 'Forum Help' as other people are having the same PM (message) problem as you and have posted there.
'Proboards who provide these Forums have had some sort of 'Incident' over the week-end which seems to have affected the PM systems of these Boards (Forums). The message 'counter' seems to show 1 more message than is actually there.
To get rid of this you have to sent yourself a PM (message) then open it. then delete it. This should reset your Message counter.
I hope that makes sence.
