XF 1.1 Can we convert VBs PMs into XF style PCs with a query?

I've gotten so used to threaded personal conversations that it's a pain in the behidn to search through old VB style PMs which are one thread/page per message.

Is there any way to use a query to merge each related thread/page into a threaded XenForo style convo.

I'm assume there must be a way to specify anything with the sam convo ID to be joined together?

The problem is that there is no formal relation between individual PMs in vB. In many cases the title can be used as a loose relation but that doesn't always work.

I looked into this earlier and concluded that it couldn't be done. In fact when we migrate over, I'm likely to simply not migrate the PMs over at all.

Is there a way I can prune pms from user x with the title Y because i used to send out the welcome message and my sent box is crammed with them
