Hi Experts,

Is there a way to ?kill? a message in Exchange? A message went to hundreds if not thousands of people over-and-over

I am looking for an option in Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007 to delete a message

Can anyone point me on the right direction?

Thanks

Pause all queues in Queue Manager, then right click each queue and "Drop (No NDR)"

Or - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821901

Basically stopping SMTP from receiving messages so they all NDR (from what I can gather, never tried it personally)

To stop SMTP is not an option to me.

I do not want to cause a downtime into my network

Any other options?

Thanks in advance

What about by using EXMERGE or any other tools?

EXMerge is for taking email out of exchange and either putting it in another Information Store, or a PST.

if the email has been submitted, it is now not there and is sat on your Exchange Queues sending.

Even if you do remove it from the users mailbox, it's already been submitted!

my understanding is that in Exchange 2007 I can recall the message or deleting it

Is that correct?

You can recall email from within Outlook / Exchange, however this doesn't work most of the time (as any email submitted and queued will probably send before the notice goes out).

If it is the volume you have suggested, I would seriously consider just stopping queues and clearing up!
