If, for a longer period of time, there are no replies on a forum thread, or, the solution has been found already, the post is of no use and should be deleted.
AFAIK users can not delete their post themselves. How to proceed then?

Thanks.

I have an addin that deletes posts with no answers - I think it is set for a year. I'll check and see if I can allow users to delete their own posts if no answers. (I don't want to let them deleted ones with answers - because there are some that will delete them as soon as they get an answer.)

I changed the permissions for your account - I think you should be able to delete your own threads with no time limit - see if it allows you to only delete ones with no responses.

Thanks a lot. I guess post -with- an a reply should not be deleted: the reply given my include a solution that may be of help for other users.
Those without a reply though, it makes sense that the user should be able to delete them.
Either he/she found solved the matter after posting, or there is no response for days, or the questions doesn't make sense as it is impossible to solve. In my case, I believe it is not possible to batch update the Message-field in Calendar (except then by opening each and every event, make the change and resave it).

Anyway, I'll try to delete the post.

Thanks again.!

Not sure it will work for post title "How to find and replace a word in Outlook-Agenda-Subject and Message?"
There is no 'Delete' option there, there is one below my post above.

May be you could delete it?

Thanks.
