"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

If you're wanting server side powershell scripting, I'll need more detail.

We are doing some end user training and we need to reset a mailbox back to it's default state after each class. So deleting all mail, rules, signatures, etc.

Can this be done without deleting the mailbox and then recreating it?

I reckon the best you can get is to use

to delete the mailbox content, and then delete the rules and permissions, and whatever might be set ... (don't have the commands ready for that yet).
There is no "reset" command for a mailbox to put it into initial state.
