Checking for new messages

To use this feature, you may be required to update the system software.

When you sign in to PSNSM, the system will automatically check for any new messages you have received. You can view these messages under (Friends) > (Message Box) > (Received).

Saving attached files

Select the file that was attached to the received message. Follow the on-screen instructions to save the file.


  • The number of received messages you can save depends on the free space of the system storage. After the system storage's space has all been used, messages will automatically be deleted starting from the oldest.
  • Attachments can be saved only to the system storage.
  • You must be signed in to PSNSM to receive messages. Sent messages that have not been received are kept for 30 days. After that time, they will automatically be deleted from the server.
  • To submit a complaint about unwelcome or harassing messages, select the message, press the Triangle button and select [Grief Report].
