How do I delete mail items in an internal Public Folder?  I have one item that is stuck in the mail-enabled Public Folder for internal mail.  And I BELIEVE it happens to be something that is getting quarantined by our AV server.  So every day, I get notice that this message was quarantined again, and again, and again.  OR... is there even a way to SEE what that one single stuck message is so I can confirm that what is stuck IS the suspected icky message?  I have just set the folder's properties to: Limits | Deletion Settings | Keep deleted items for 1 day, hoping that this problem message item will be gone by tomorrow.  Feedback and'or comments??!!  Thanks in advance...

Have you tried looking at the public folder through OWA? That can sometimes show an items that is corrupt better than Outlook. Another option would be to look at pfdavadmin which is a download from Microsoft.

Simon -- Thanks for your quick response.  I looked from the OWA perspective and found something else I wasn't even aware of!  So I made that correction.  But this didn't solve my stated issue.  And yes, I tried PFDAVAdmin, drilled down to the System Folders | internal item and was able to look at registry values and other information which was already depicted in the System Manager console.  Good pointers on both accounts.  Thanks again.  I am going to see how much mileage I get out of the setting change I mentioned earlier and will then get back to this question.

This did not solve my issue, but was correct in the OWA front and was a referral to an excellent tool that I will use in other situations.  Thanks Simon.
