How do you delete all PMs at once?

I've got over 100 pages of PMs to clean up.

Is there a way to delete them all at once with only a single keystroke or two?

For me, checking ALL, and then Delete Checked only deletes the PMs on that one page.

I've got 138 pages of PMs. Several thousand individual messages.

So how can we delete all those thousands of messages all at once?

I do not think we can. Pretty much the way Pac said it though you can choose to do them by conversation which speeds it up a tiny bit if you know you want to delete all messages from say me you can do that without really paying attention too closely.

Oops! My bad. You're correct... can only do one page at a time, as far as I know. Sorry 'bout that!
