This module allows you as an admin to monitor all site messages (messages sent to Dolphin's inbox) of all members. It has tools for viewing latest messages, searching by a nickname, searching by a keyword inside subject and message body and watching the full conversation history of selected members. On top of this it allows you to provide a list of words/phrases which will be triggering an admin notification each time any of those words/phrases is used in a conversation. This feature may be very useful to keep an eye on spammers and rude fellows.
Screenshots above reveal the essence of the module more than any words can.
