    In my Personal Message Centre, under My Conversations, I have several 'conversations' marked as deleted:

    [attachment=86307:y.gif]

    Hovering my cursor over the big Red X gives a popup stating "Deleted Message".

    Selecting them with the tick-box on the right and then Delete > Go doesn't delete them.

    So, how do I delete deleted messages?

    I think I have the answer.

    The message I had deleted, and which I showed above, was one of a sequence with the same subject and would otherwise be considered, in today's day and age, a 'Conversation' and bound together as one.

    Deleting another companion message (same subject, but not otherwise deleted) resulted in the already deleted message being really, really deleted.

    (I hope someone else can follow all this. )

    Yes...

    As you have found the messages with a "Deleted Message" X is from before the transition. Now it's a "Conversation". I found some “deleted”.

    But how do you () save a message, export to html etc. before you clean the inbox?

    I think the "Help Files" cover the prior Lounge and doesn't do much for this incarnation yet. Theory is great if it can be put into practice. Probably this is a "waiting issue" and WSS how it develops as the "workers" put the finishing touches on this Lounge. That's my view of it anyway.

    Yes but they didn't cover the prior Lounge either (at least not completely), since the Help Files are based on the "standard" help files for the IPB software, and not all settings etc. are used. But as you say, the help files will probably be updated.
