    Note that 'delete' = 'leave' in Xenforo.

    If you go to your conversations, there's now a "Conversation Tools" widget in the upper right. From there, you can export all conversations (or leave all conversations).

    To delete a specific conversation: go to your inbox and select (click on the box left of the subject line) conversations you want to 'leave'. Click them and then click 'other action' and 'leave conversations'.

    Can you change the label to say delete instead of leave? I'm sure this is easily doable. I just spent half an hour trying to clean up my inbox and couldn't find the function.

    if you "leave" a conversation can you "re-enter" it later?

    Could you up the message limit? Surely they can't take that much space, and a typical transaction might easily involve 5-10 messages back and forth confirming tracking, etc. Thx!

    Great... I just deleted (left?) all my conversations. How can I get some of them back?
