There is no Search feature like we have in Exchange 2010

Export-Mailbox "UserMailbox" -Senderkeywords "senderemail" -Deletecontent

I've used the following script to do that:

$s = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://ServerName/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos
Import-PSSession $s
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010 -erroraction SilentlyContinue
$lines = Get-Content "c:\TEMP\removal.txt" #text file of mailboxes
foreach ($line in $lines) {
	Search-Mailbox -identity $line -SearchQuery Subject:'text_to_find1'-DeleteContent -Force:$True 
	Search-Mailbox -identity $line -SearchQuery Subject:'text_to_find2'-DeleteContent -Force:$True 
	}

Export-Mailbox command is supported in Exchange 2007 and Search-Mailbox for Exchange 2010.

For example, if you want to delete a specific mail with sender address subsun@test.com with subject line ”I am back”, then you can use the following command. The command will move the emails to TargetMailbox specified in command (TempMailbox folder To Delete) and then delete the specified content from the user mailboxes.

You may also use -StartDate & -EndDate parameters to specify the dates which you want to search email (to narrow down the search).

Example will search for the specified email on server EXCH.
Get-Mailbox -Server EXCH | Export-Mailbox -TargetMailbox TempMailbox -TargetFolder ”To Delete” -SenderKeywords subsun@test.com -SubjectKeywords ”I am back” –StartDate “12/30/10" –EndDate “12/31/10" –DeleteContent –MaxThreads 10
