How do I remove corrupted e-mail messages in Exchange?

I have about 10 corrupted e-mail messages in a users mailbox abd need to delete them. I already tried to use mdbvu32 to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use ExMerge to extract/delete messages if you know the subject line.

I already tried the above tools and they did not work. I have not tried the exmerg route yet, but I will comment later on that.

If you encounter problems in deleting the messages from MDB Viewer, please
recreate the problematic mailbox using the following instructions:

1. Use Exmerge tool to export mailbox to PST file.

To use Exmerge, refer to the following article:

174197 XADM: Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Merge Program (Exmerge.exe)

2. Open the PST file from some other Outlook client to verify if we can
access inbox in the PST file.

3. If the PST file is good, go to ADUC (Active Directory Users and
Computers), right-click the problematic user and then click Exchange tasks.
Select remove exchange attributes.

4. Right-click the user again and then click Exchange tasks. Select create

5. Import PST back into mailbox using Exmerge or Outlook.

What if the exmerg bombs because of the few corrupted e-mails, will the user lose e-mails due to the fact it bombed during the middle of an export ?
