windows script outlook 2010

I am NEW to scripting, meaning I have started learning from the scripting guys website. So I know next to NOTHING.
I would like to attempt to make a script thinking that if I have something in mind that i want to happen, it would be easier to make the script.
so for outlook 2010, i get delivery receipts ( I get these voluntarily, I want the receipts ) and I thought it would be nice to have something periodically go into my inbox and delete the delivery receipts.
Would this be a ridiculously ambitious script for a know nothing like me to attempt?

This may work:

#!/bin/bash
# rm_mssg.sh user subject

if [ -z "$2" ]; then
 echo "usage:  rm_message.sh <fromuser_name> <subject>"
 echo "  Rummages through all mail boxes looking for messages from <fromuser_name> with subject=<subject>"
 echo "  Example: ./rm_mssg.sh butthead_user rems "
 echo "  Put double-quotes around multi-word subjects"
 exit 0
else
 addr=$1
 subject=$2

 for usractnopac in `zmprov gaa`
  do
   echo "Searching $usractnopac  for Subject:  $subject From: $addr"
   for msg in `zmmailbox -z -m "$usractnopac" s -l 999 -t message "from:$addr subject:$subject"|awk '{ if (NR!=1) {print}}' |
      grep -v -e Id -e "-" -e "^$" | awk '{ print $2 }'`
      do
        echo "Removing "$msg""
        zmmailbox -z -m $usractnopac dm $msg
      done
   done
fi

Thank you atsvirginia - but I was just wondering if this would be crazy hard. I thought if I attempted making the script, that would be a good way to learn. But it wouldn't be a good way if it was something that would require someone with more advanced knowledge.
I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I didn't want someone to make the script for me, because I wouldn't learn that way.
