We are looking for a way to mass remove an email, sent in error, whether it is read or not. We are not looking for a recall.
We are running exchange 2010 sp3 rollup 7 on server 2008R2

#give yourself the required permissions first
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | Add-MailboxPermission -User MyAdmin -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType all


#Then do the delete
#  -TargetMailbox MyBackupMailbox -TargetFolder DeleteMsgs   These fields are expecting that you have a mailbox and folder where you move the mail before deleting you can remove these
Get-Mailbox  -ResultSize Unlimited | Export-Mailbox -SubjectKeywords "Your email subject" -IncludeFolders "\Inbox" -StartDate "11/24/2014" -EndDate "11/25/2014" -DeleteContent -TargetMailbox MyBackupMailbox -TargetFolder DeleteMsgs -Confirm:$false

My comment is of course based on the idea you are trying to remove the email from all users mailboxes in your organization.

If that is the case then the above post is perfect.
