Is there a way to delete messages from the Canvas messaging system?   I'd like to jettison the one's from last semester.


Yes, there is. You check the box to select a message (or several) and click on the trash can.  See screen shot below. But, I strongly recommend against it! I'd leave all your student correspondence archived, as you never know when you may need evidence for a grade or other dispute!

Yes, never get rid of student correspondence unless you can back them up.  If you have notifications set to send you an email every time a student uses the inbox, you could save those in an Outlook folder and then delete the ones in Canvas.

Exporting the Canvas Inbox should be a feature in my opinion.
