So... I've scoured the internet for a solution and tried many of them but I just want to be able to delete a mass email sent from one of our staff to every person in our company.

Like I said... I've read many many posts and none of them seem to work.  I get mixed results with different commands.

What would you do to eliminate, delete, purge from your system, an email that was sent to all of your domain user email account holders?

Do you have an Exchange Server in your organization?

If you do - you can use the message recall option, or exmerge to remove it via the server:

I should have mentioned it's an Exchange 2007 server.

Well - in that case you need the Export-Mailbox command instead:

SP3 Includes the ability to delete without exporting to a destination folder first, and I had already read this information, but it's a good site.
