The private message system already has a warning message requiring members confirm the deletion of private messages when the delete button is clicked.

Sorry Bruce, I was meant to say is a specific message for Deleting All Private Messages. Right now the message that pops up is the same if you delete one message or all of your messages. Maybe make the background red and make text really big? and say you are deleting ALL of your private messages!

Agreed. A big red flag that's different from any usual warning as this is a big decision, not losing one, but all, and they are unrecoverable. 
Sometimes it impacts business deals - when they lose record of their transactions via PM.
Message for deleting all should be totally different from message for deleting a few or one.
