Is there a hack or method to deleting, say, all Inbox or Sent Items private messages that are older than a year or so?

Also, is there a way to stop vbulletin 5 from putting a copy of the Welcome PM into the admin's Sent Items outbox this is part of why it gets so full.

PMs are also nodes and shoUlf be deletable by admincp nodetools prune. I donít think you could find and delete welcomepms, but you could delete the folder-items by selecting and batch delete.

It's strange but vbulletin is claiming that it is impossible to delete PMs, at least that having a user delete them and put them in the trash, or using ACP to delete all the PMs of a user has no effect.

If it were me I'd just go into the SQL database and run a query on the privatemessage table to delete PMs by User ID. It'd be a lot easier than trying to do it from the front end.
