XF 1.4 Delete all PM's sent by specific user?

Is there a way to delete all PM's from peoples inboxes sent by a specific user?

For example I have an admin account which I send out inbox messages once a month, I don't want someone logging on after 12 months and seeing 12 out of date inbox messages.

Can we delete say after a month or something?

When you edit an user from yoru admin panel, under the Actions tab you can run the Delete Conversations link and it will delete all conversations started by that particular user.

That doesn't work for Admin or Moderator users though.

So, realistically it's not possible without an add-on.

If the code that protects Admins and Moderators from that is removed, their started conversations can be deleted too.
