We need a script that will remove a single contact (of an ex-employee) from all personal contact folders on an Exchange 2007 server.  Anyone done this?

Thanks

How are you going to police this one then? Easier to write a transport rule prohibiting mails sent to this person at Exchange level if that is the desired result.

I'm not going to police it.  One user left, and the address book is providing the wrong name to the phones since someone new has been assigned to that number.  I'm simply looking for a simple way to remove that contact from all address books, one time.

Sorry, thought you were in a 'malicious user' situation, I don't think you can go through personal contacts for all users and selectively delete contact information. When you say address book are you referring to personal address book or Global Address List?
