 how to delete mass pms sent from admin cp?, a little bit urgent
hey guys! so one of my admin on our board made an announcement but the link she gave directs everyone RIGHT to the admin cp. they don't have to log in, it;s all right there for them.

she's set the board offline for the moment while we scramble to fix this. it's been sent as a mass pm to all the members, is there a way to delete those pms?

argh this is intense lol, please help!

okay well we sort of fixed it in a round-a-bout way by deleting the admin's account. all the pm's vanished (and any email notifications people may have got vanished also)

is there an alternative fix we could have done for this?

While you couldn't have unsent the PMs, there is a security option in the Admin CP to bind sessions to IP addresses. This is under security and privacy. It makes it to even if someone gets the session key, it can't be utilized.
