    I guess Sykkn would know this if anyone does, but I'd guess that it's limited by the database field, which would guess is a 255 characters wide VARCHAR value. Don't take me authoritative on this, though.

    Hmmmm.

    Thats wierd because I'm definitely limited to 60 characters to include spaces?

    I wonder if there's something that I can adjust on my end?


    Thanks for the response

    Well, I guess that my final line here would be that I don't own these forums, and as such, I can't check. Wait and see if Sykkn sees this thread.

    No worries,

    I was just wondering.

    Do you get the same results if you were to type 60 characters in the Subject line one after the other?

    Thanks,

    Coo....

    So, it isn't something that I can change.


    Again this is actually really trivial. Just thought that I would point it out.


    Thanks Dolda.
