Exchange 2010, Deleting all messages in Inbox

I have a user who has never monitored her email account ( physician ) and wants me to delete all 8,000 + messages in her inbox.  What is the best way using either the EMC or EMS ?

Thanks ....

"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.
