Is there a way to delete all my private messages at once or do they have to be deleted individually? I want to get rid of them. I have responded to them all and don't need to keep them any longer. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I wish we could delte our private messages. I have responded to all of mine also. I don't think there is a way to delete any of them. I have never seen where we could. Have you? I would delte them individually if that is what it takes. I will have to go check that out. I would like to take alot of them out of there. We no longer need most of them now. alot of them are spam.

I will try this again. I have been booted offline four times now trying to get my response in on this discussion!!!! As far as I know you have to delete the private messages individually. If there is a way to do them all at once or more than one at a time I have not found it. It would be nice to be able to mark the ones you want to delete and do those all at one time.

Marie, I would first recommend you read the guidelines and then follow a few discussions to see if that helps. I've been here almost a year and didn't know how to delete private messages so I am still learning. Once you get the hang of this site, you will love it. If I can help you in any way, please feel free to send me a private message and I will respond as soon as I can. Thanks for responding, carolbee

I didn't know we could delete our PMs. Thanks for letting me in on this neat feature. I just assumed since we couldn't delete our own discussions that we couldn't delete our old PMs either.

Ok, now I'm totally lost here. How can you delete your PMs? I just tried deleting one but there is no 'delete' icon or anything.

I had 6 full pages and it sure was time consuming.
