Try one at a time. It's tedious, but it worked for me. Make sure you complete each step, including confirmation.

I had to do the same thing: open each message and delete it individually. If I checked the box and tried to delete them all at once it didn't work.

I have this situation also. And yet whoever I have sent it to received it. I have received their reply and the conversation continues along. Two are from more than a year ago still claiming to not have been sent. Technology. Yes, it should sound in your mind like a colorful metaphor as you read the word!

I can but one at a time only.

nashorn just to be sure. Are you opening one old message and then with that message open hitting the X icon at the top right?
The X is one of three boxes X ! " for delete, report and quote.
Not just selecting one box on the main list of your message sent etc. I know does not work.
