Hmmm....  Unfortunate.  Perhaps I can come up with something....  Or you could share your solution in this thread?

BTW, if moderators have a problem with this, please speak up!

sure. I run a VPS and when I started I didn't know much about Linux so I installed almost everything I could.

I also had to configure a mail server, Postfix.

Postfix has an option to (BCC) blind carbon copy ALL mail both in and out to a nominated account ... I simply set that and then I could see the PM notification emails and their attachments. I am worried about people sending password protected zip file attachments in an attempt to solicit as well as normal PMs to do the same.

so now I can read each PM and can audit them as they appear. simple.

Hi dougie, how/where i can access the attachments sent in PMs ?

I know in which directory you have them but i'd like to audit them (encryption is ON, also) ... is this possible ?
Just so that you know, SMF's official response to the question of allowing admin to read other member's PMs not addressed to admin can be read in this thread.  I strongly suggest you read the thread.  And, yes, I realize that you already figured a solution to your needs....

Personally, I would be hesitant to add such capability to this mod, as doing so might get the mod rejected from the customization site.  While I share the ability to update the mod with SoLoGHoST, it is NOT my mod....  (I still consider it MINEO:) )

EDIT:  Fixed the very first statement to read "to read other member's PMs not addressed to admin"....

thanks, I read the topic and it makes sense to almost every forum except mine. The only thing i can add is that I use the PM Warning mod to let members know that;
