Full Version: Only allow PMs between members and moderators

Is it possible, using some combination of settings, to allow private messages to be sent and received only between a group and another group, like for example between "staff" and "registered users"? I saw there are a couple of confusing settings, tried them but they don't seem to work as intended. For example, I saw there is an option like "can use private messages", and another like "can send private messages", separate options, but I'm not sure what's the difference. Also there are others like "send private messages even if the user has disabled them", etc.

What I'm trying to achieve is a way to disable PMs for all users, but still have a way to use them between the staff (like super moderators) and the users, for support. So members can't send PMs to each other, but they can send PMs to the moderators and moderators should be able to reply to them. Is something like that possible? Or even partially, with some workaround or combinations of settings? If not, I think it would be a useful feature to add in the following releases. Like a option saying "Only send and receive PMs from <select groups>".
