You see most of us came from Y groups and in Y groups the messages could be hidden from members so we didn't have to worry about deleting them. Why is it important to delete messages you may ask? Because our groups aren't like 80% of the groups on Groups IO where conversation is the main focus of the group and references are needed so keeping the messages is important.I think it's more like 99.9% of groups here that use email archives.
Perhaps switching to Google Groups would work for you, as while it also keeps a message archive, it has an option to refuse access to anyone except owners. See attached screencaps.
