    1. Log in to BHW and download your PMs as an xml file:
    Code:

    2. Download and install vBulletin PM reader:
    Code:

    3. Make a new database with the tool and import the downloaded xml file, that's it!


    It can be useful in those extreme cases when you want to access your PMs with no internet connection :)
    or when your pm box is full and you need to delete messages to be able to get new ones.
    And of course you can do this on any other vBulletin forums as well where you're able to download your PMs (as an xml file).

    Interesting to know but I can't really think of any real practical use. But thanks for sharing

    let's say you have some important pms on a vBulletin forum what you want to keep for the time being and one sunny day your pm inbox will be full (you can't receive new pms until you don't delete pms), then you can download all the pms as an xml file, import it into this tool and you are able to browse your pms in a very convenient way again whenever you need it
    telling the truth the downloaded xml file looks pretty ugly in itself :)
