export-mailbox Administrator -PSTFolderPath C:\temp\ -DeleteContent -endDate 11/30/2009

This command actually exports them to a PST rather than simply deleting them which means you could restore them if required.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

That command only does Administrator this does everything on the server before this date and only validates figured id post it.

Get-Mailbox -Server YourMailServerName| Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath H:\temp\ -EndDate "09/30/2007 12:01:00" -DeleteContent -validateonly

Both Tony and I combined to give Donny his command. He should give either one of us the points.
