Is it possible to batch delete PMs on the forum without physically selecting each one. It’s just cause there’s 930  :-[

I don't know how many there are on a page (I prune mine an only have about 5 I want to keep) but you can check the box above the top line on the right to select all on that page and then delete with the button at the bottom on the right.  That'll speed the process to 930/n pages

PMs/Actions/Prune, to toss stuff older than N days...
I'd offer you some moral support - but I have questionable morals.
