XF 1.4 How can I delete a mass conversation imported from vB?

    Back in 2010, running vB, I sent out a mass message to all of our members, 500 at a time. We've since converted to XF (obviously).

    A member who hasn't been on since then just replied to the message, sending the replies to the 498 other members that I had originally sent the message.

    My guess is this will probably have to be something done on the back end, but I need to delete this conversation. How can I do so?

    Unfortunately there isn't really an explicit way to do it. It's not something that's exposed to the UI anywhere. You can delete all conversations started by a user via the control panel -- it's a way to handle spam -- but that is unlikely to be usable in this case. I would very strongly advise not deleting the conversation via the database because there are a lot of relationships here.

    You may be able to get away with going into the conversation and editing it to "lock" it.

    Thanks Mike, locking the thread worked great :)
