Exchange 2013 and 2012 R2 AD - How to search individual mailboxes from the ECP

I have a need to search for specific content inside user(s) mailbox from the admin console for exchange 2013.  I need to be able to locate specific emails and be able to delete them without logging on as that user.

It seems ECP has been dumbed down a bit and more advanced features are done from the shell.  Is there a way, and specifically a tutorial, explaining how to search mailboxes and delete content?

We've had a data spill of sensitive data and I need to be able to remove the emails from the admin console.

This is also a pretty good guide
The powershell cli is the way to do this if you don't have ediscovery setup

In the end I only had to search a handful of accounts so it was easy to do from client side, but the 2 comments above would be a good solution.  We don't have enterprise version of exchange so ediscovery isn't available to me.
