    This is more of a thing for the older (imported) PMs, but would it be possible for a merge PM option to be added? Like to merge PMs into one conversation to clean up PM inboxes?

    This isn't essential at all, it would just be a nice feature

    Wouldn't it have to be temporary then? Unless you also plan on merging newer PMs?

    i think this is a good idea. it would help clean the clutter that is my mailbox. it would also lower the percent used as well

    THis is a very useful idea, although in no sure how hard it'll be to program.

    The code behind such a feature would be simplistic, it would largely be a SQL query — in fact half of the work gas already been done in transitioning the old PMs over in the first place.

    aha, I already deleted all my old PMs because they aren't merged (if I known this could happen sooner I wouldn't of deleted them) figured I'd go with a fresh start for my new PM box.

    Hate to do this, but "bump" (I have the horrible feeling this was overlooked on account of that mess of a unified thread).
    Non-essential, sure, but just boosting chances and whatnot.
