Search-Mailbox -Identity "test" -SearchQuery -DeleteContent

'Search-Mailbox" is not recognized as a cmdlet, function, opperable program or script file.

Any idea ? We are running Exchange 2007. Tks

I didn't realize that doesn't work on pre 2010.
This should:
Get-content c:\11MailboxesList.txt | Get-mailbox | Export-Mailbox -DeleteContent
