I'm trying to write an EX2010 SP1 EMS command to delete a message with the following attributes:

Rcv'd between: 3/26/2012 & 3/27/2012
Subject: blah blah
Sent to: specific user

I've tried the following but I get an error:

get-mailbox "user.name" |search-mailbox -searchquery 'subject:"blah blah"
' -StartDate "3/26/2012" -EndDate "3/27/2012" -deletecontent

The error I get:

A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '3/26/2012'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Search-Mailbox], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Search-Mailbox

If I remove the -startdate and -enddate, it's successful, but it searches and deletes all messages with subject 'blah blah', which is not what I need.

you use -SearchQuery “Subject:Exchange”,”Sent:today”

or -SearchQuery “Subject:Exchange”,”Receive:today”

Or something like that, you can put sent and receive criteria but startdate and enddate is not valid command i believe.
