Deleting multiple emails in Inbox using Powershell.

We have a mailbox that we use for our SPAM Notifications and we have over 40,000 emails in the mailbox.  What PowerShell command can I use to delete them all?  We are using Exchange 2010 SP3 with Office 2013.

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Try This;

export-mailbox -id 'mailbox' -deletecontent -confirm:$False

If that doesn't work, try this;

Search-Mailbox -Identity "Nam_of_mailbox" -DeleteContent -Force
