Just a note, the select all checkbox doesn't seem to work.

Option to enable/disable the Preview
Is this a user option or only a global setting?

It's currently only an admin setting.. In the next version I'm looking into also making it a user option as well.

I've tried to replicate this and haven't been able to, what other hacks do you have installed? (specifically those that do anything PM related)

The only hacks that do anything related to PM are the "Quote Post to PM" mod and the "Pretty PM Notification". I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

The Length of the preview on that one is set using the threadpreview length whereas mine has a independant setting so you could run this hack and have threadpreviews disabled if you want.. I'd say that is probably the biggest difference from just looking at the thread.

I disabled those two and still had the same problem. If you can't reproduce it I'll provide a list of all the hacks installed, one of them may be the culprit, but as of now I can't seem to get any of the messages to select if I check the "All" box. It's a minor thing, but kinda annoying. The old 3.6 mod for PM Preview did the same thing for me too.

hmmm.. very odd, on my demo board the select all works on 1, 5, 20 messages.. haven't tested it with any more than that now.. It really shouldn't affect the select all as it doesn't interact with that, but I'll keep looking..
