How to delete e-mail from all exchange 2007 mailboxes
Posted on 2014-02-10
I need to delete a specific e-mail from all mailboxes in my exchange 2007 organization. The user sent out an e-mail that needs to be deleted and then sent a recall to outlook. Most of the recalls failed. Then the user sent another e-mail with identical subject and body with the correct attachments. I need to delete the first e-mail with the wrong attachment. I tried using the following commands.
get-mailbox | Export-Mailbox –ContentKeywords "message" –TargetMailbox Administrator –TargetFolder 'MyData' –DeleteContent
I also tried the subject switch but when I run these commands it appears to be pulling over much more then just the one e-mail per user that needs to be deleted. This was discouraging so I canceled it because I didn't want to accidentally delte e-mails from several users.
What is the best/easiest way to delete the one specific e-mail without catching everything else that might have a similar keyword?
