If your an excahnge/domain admin

You can simply create an New OUtlook Profile on your own machine using the users Details

Once created, you should have access to their Entire mailbox allowing you to delete the items

Hi,

Yes configuring outlook is one way and there are two more ways.

1.  Powershell:

Single user:

Export-Mailbox -Identity "First.Lastname" -SubjectKeywords "This is my test message." -DeleteContent

2. Via OWA:

make sure you have full permission usera@domain.com--> go to IE--> use owa like this (https://webmail.yourdomin.com/owa/usera@domain.com) --> when it ask for credentials give yours--> now you are in user's mailbox--> you can delete the particular mail

You mentioned delete all email from specific users.. for that, run the below shell command

Get-Mailbox -Identity "mailbox Name" | Export-Mailbox -senderkeywords "sender@emailaddress.com" -deletecontent
