    Apparently I "soft deleted" a pair of visitor messages. How do I do a true delete of visitor messages?

    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?
