My archive software creates a folder within each of our user's mailbox.  I want to be able to delete this folder that has the specific name "MailboxArchive" at the Exchange level.  Is there a way to accomplish this using PowerShell?  Something like, if mailbox contains folder called MailboxArchive, then delete.

Thanks.

Based on my searches, there's no built-in cmdlet in Exchange 2010 for deleting FOLDERS from user's mailboxes.  Deleting emails? Sure.  But not folders.

In order to delete folders, you'll have to import the Exchange web services API and call it from PowerShell, as detailed in this technet forum.
