    You can set it in Settings>Messages>Keep Messages to delete all messages over 30 days old automatically. Any you wish to save, you can turn iMessage off, then email the message/messages to yourself, then turn iMessage back on.

    Welcome to the site... Unfortunately, you are unable to do this. Would be nice, but not necessary for me.

    Also if you wish you can now with iOS 8 turn on Do Not Disturb for individual message threads
