HI,  I have a query below which basically finds duplicates email addresses across 2 tables.  The results of this I would like to delete from the em_exclusion table.  I.e for every row that is returned from the below query I would like to delete from the exclusion table any row that has an email address duplicate with the em_subscriber table.

I have googled around for this and watched YouTube videos and cant find anything on deleting the results of an "Inner Join"

select * from activecampaign.em_exclusion
Inner join activecampaign.em_subscriber
ON em_exclusion.email = em_subscriber.email


Thanks  all

reading the technical reference:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/delete.html

you want to write it like this:
delete activecampaign.em_exclusion
from from activecampaign.em_exclusion
Inner join activecampaign.em_subscriber
ON em_exclusion.email = em_subscriber.email
