This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

The GUI method of clearing previous messages for an account in empathy consists of right clicking a buddy in the contact list, selecting "previous conversations", and subsequently selecting "Edit"->"Clear" in the popup window. Then, select the account you'd like to clear the logs on and confirm deletion of your logs.

Logs for empathy are stored in /home/<username>/.local/share/Empathy/

Hope this helps :)
