every time I try to look up something on the web real quick through spotlight , it brings up stuff from my text messages. The problem is, its really old messages that I have deleted already. Ex. If I type "hey" it brings up this massive list of text , but its from super old text messages. Is there a way of 'clearing' this history?

Thanks for any help! :apple:

Unless you need to find messages in spotlight, you could always exclude them from your list of spotlight searches in the settings.

I realize this is not ideal, but they would go away... I don't know of a way to clear it completely.
