I've used forums with newer versions of phpBB and noticed that the idiosyncrasies have changed, rather than disappeared.
I think OpenMP.org use it and a few others I have forgotten.

Attachments and a larger post size are the main changes; plus the pm storage limits are annoyingly small. Would making the post size 5x or 10x be an easy change ? I wouldn't expect this to be a significant problem for running the forum, with the change in disk storage capacity over the last 10 years.

The other annoying feature is that Preview does not account for the post limit. Fixing this could help although I suspect the size limit has aged a bit!

Here how looks the PM notification. I think it must be ON by default for us users because we actually very rarely get PMs. The site Admin though probably does not need one as i guess he is checking personal messages automatically every time

I got one yesterday, I suspect it only happens when both the sender and receiver are online and logged-in at the moment the message is actually sent !
