How many characters are allowed in a PM?

I tried to send this as a PM and get the "Flood attempt detected" message.

Is this too long:?

I have gently lead him to pasture, I'm done.
You showed him one way to go, and I showed another.
He doesn't know enough about computers to use help he gets, so that's it.

  1. I've received that error before, because the title of the PM was the same as another one I had recently sent. I changed the title, and it sent fine.

    +1      You are right, another PM had been sent with the same name and by changing it, the msg went through fine, thanks ☺
