Remove all activesync devices in a mailbox in Exchange 2007

Somehow, when I started syncing a new Android device to our Exchange 2007 (SBS2008) server, so many individual device partnerships for this device flooded my mailbox account, that it refused to sync my WinMo 6.5 phone - probably timed out. In any case ther are so many in there (dozens, maybe more. I used the Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox  cmdlet and they scrolled by so fast that I couldn't get a count) that it takes about 8 minutes or more each to delete them one by one. I'm trying to find a way to delete them all with a single statement in the Management console. I know the Remove-ActiveSyncDevice –Identity <DeviceID> cmdlet will delete one (I've been successful with this) but I need a way that I can insert a wildcard in the DeviceID becuase each divice ID has ten or so unique integers in the end of the string. Any ideas?

i would suggest you to wipe the mobile and start from the scratch.
Why not do:

Get-ActiveSyncDevice -Mailbox "<your mailbox" | remove-ActiveSyncDevice

That should remove all of them from your mailbox

Thanks for the suggestion. However, this is the response I got from the Management Shell when I ran this cmdlet (in the examples, I substituted <mymailbox>):

The term 'Get-ActiveSyncDevice' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, func
tion, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a
 path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:21
+ Get-ActiveSyncDevice <<<<  -Mailbox <mymailbox> | remove-ActiveSyncDevice
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Get-ActiveSyncDevice:String) []
   , CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

After trying this cmdlet, I ran "Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox: <mymailbox>" again to make sure that the path is correct, and it succeeded.

ranga matta,

I am willing to try this, but are you certain that this would delete all partnerships for this device on the server?

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox markstory | remove-ActiveSyncDevice

Thanks MegaNuk3. I actually tried this alternative before I saw your correction - but it works, or actually is working. I first selected "y" when prompted for comfirmation, but it only deleted one of the many partnerships. When prompted for the next however, I selected "A" for all and it has been working since then - 75 minutes so far. But I expected this and am confident this is the solution. Now all I have to figure out is why it happend in the first place to avoid repeating it.
75 minutes? Wow, that is a lot of device pairings.
