You can get the user to perform a recall of the message, but if it has been read that will not do the trick.
If you have a small number of mailboxes you could login to OWA as an Exchange admin and delete the mail directly from the mailbox of each user - http://server/exchange/username.

You need to be careful about privacy when doing this. If possible get approval from above - company information officer is the correct person in the UK.

is there no way to simply say any email user A sent with word "X" delete from all mailboxs?

i am trying powershell
get-mailbox | Export-Mailbox ContentKeywords "message" TargetMailbox Administrator TargetFolder 'MyData' DeleteContent


which seems to run ok and creates the folders in the admin account email but does not actually copy and delete the email as i hoped

You will need to assign the Administrator as a Full Access Permission on the user Milabox

NO it will apply to all as the result from Get-mailbox will be assigned with Add-MailboxPermission
Just replace the DomainName\administrator with a user that have a Full Access to the org
I suggest to use the administrator but change the DomainName with the Correct Domain Name
