In summary, to delete a specific visitor message, click on the message and select the delete button. To delete multiple messages at once, select the messages and confirm the deletion.

Soft deleting means that the messages are no longer viewable, but they are retained on the system should they need to be recovered. Users only have the permissions necessary to soft delete messages, however mentors can permanently delete them.

I can clear out your messages now if you wish?
