Re PMs

Is there a way of editing or deleting PMs, if not could it be considered for the future, it’s so handy on the forum.


  • Hi ,

    Thank you for your question, I'm Eliza from the Community team.

    Members can't edit or delete private messages once these have been sent. 

    If you would like to check what you have written before you send it, it can sometimes be helpful to uncheck the "Enter to send" box below the private message. This means you need to click the green "send" button at the bottom of the private message to send your message. This prevents the chance of sending a message accidentally or before you've finished writing what you want to say.

    We can certainly document the feedback that this might be a helpful feature for the future. If you would like to discuss any features of the Online Community further or if you have any questions, please get in touch with us over email to

    Best wishes,

    Macmillan Community Team
