QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
With MSX 2007 you would need to connect to each Outlook session to do so. No, you can't do that with reasonable effort, AFAIK. But I will add more topics to reach out to more Experts to either confirm or disprove.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

It can be done via using PS command. In 2007 you can use export command to delete the content. Read this
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/exchange/2010/10/27/removing-specific-messages-from-your-exchange-server/

In 2010, you can use search mailbox PS command let. Which also do same job.

Note: Don't give vague search query, when doing bulk deletion. Use date, from and subject, pipe it to target mailbox. So you can recover them later. In case you deleted wrong email. Also, remember there is a risk involved in bulk deletion. If you pipe wrong command.

so which command should I use if for ex. I want to remove meetings of let us say user abc@domain.com from all outlook users

QlemoC++ DeveloperCommented:
With Export-Mailbox you have no way to restrict to meetings only. You would have to provide subjects identifying the items exactly.

Hi Pramod1,
I might be oversimplifying, but why not log in as ex-user, view calendar in List view, and delete all meetings. It will send cancellations to all invitees.

cant I use below command

Get-Mailbox | Export-Mailbox -SenderKeywords “user@domain.com” -IncludeFolders “\Calendar” –DeleteContent

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
Use this one:

get-content c:\temp\list.txt | Get-Mailbox | Export-Mailbox -TargetMailbox TesttMailbox -TargetFolder Test  -SenderKeywords “user@domain.com” -IncludeFolders “\Calendar” –DeleteContent

in the txt, you give some test user and review the result. Review the result in testmailbox. If positive you can move forward with rest.
