"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Exchange Server 2010 RTM or Exchange Server 2007

The RTM version of Exchange 2010 and of Exchange 2007 use the Get-Mailbox cmdlet to search for and remove messages from mailboxes.


The following command removes all messages that contain the words “Surprise Party” in the Subject field or message body from all mailboxes in the organization:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Export-Mailbox -ContentKeywords "Surprise Party" -TargetMailbox MyBackupMailbox -TargetFolder 'SurprisePartyFolder' -DeleteContent

Or you can log into the maibox, select all email and shift-delete.

Yes.  The link I posted applies to Exchange 2007/2010/2013.  I don't think wildcards can be used.  You'll need to find some common identifier that all of the messages have in common.
