Delete Exchange 2007 folder across all mailboxes

So I'm under the impression this is impossible but let's give it a whirl...

We just setup an email archiving system called Proofpoint.  Part of this setup included running an OutlookFolderTool.exe file which Proofpoint provided us that created a subfolder under every user mailbox called "Archive by Proofpoint" which links to the website running on the appliance.

The problem lies in the fact that the home page for the newly created folder was setup to point to an HTTPS website when it needs to be pointing to an HTTP site, so nobody can currently get into the appliance to look at their archived emails.

Now, I'm no expert at either Powershell or VBS but nothing I have been able to come up with can either edit the properties of, or just plain delete, a subfolder under every mailbox across the organization.

I don't want to send out an organizational email to 800 users asking them to delete a subfolder because, under Murphy's Law and no matter how specific I am, people will invariably delete the wrong thing and I'll be doing restores for the rest of the month.

Any help GREATLY appreciated...
