This is the default behaviour of BuddyPress messaging system.
If you need to have more powerful feature for this feature, we recommend you to install the BP Better message (https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-better-messages/) as seen on our demo site.
All these new options are handled by the “BP Better Message” plugin.
Please note that this issue is related with the setup of a third party plugin, not with the use of your theme. As theme authors, the installation, setting or debugging of third party plugins isn’t part of the support we will provide.
To go further, we invite you to ask for more help from the plugin authors and post your request on their support forums:
