If you have explicit permission to access the user's mailbox to clean up the contents of the box; you can do so; otherwise without written permission it could be considered an invasion of privacy.  

As well; what happens when you delete the item that looks like spam but was an actual notification of something important like "you have won the lottery and this is how you can claim your prize"; you really have to be careful about things like this.

The better option would be to employ a spam filter like GFI MailEssentials for Exchange www.gfi.com; there are other products out there.  

(When you copy down info via eseutils you are in no way viewing the messages or have the potential of opening up messages to read.)

You can set it to drop spam with SCL of your choosing ... 8 is usualy always spam and i set to delete. I set SCL 1-7 to goto junk mail
