Exchange 2010 powershell script

Hi Experts,

- I am domain admin of our network.
- windows exchange 2010 on server 2008R2
- running exchange management shell as administrator

I have a user that has 10's of thousands of email in his junk mail and deleted times. There are too many delete them using outlook.

I am trying to find a power shell script that will allow me to do the deleting from there.

Been searching  but not coming up with anything precise on deleting mail items only. Obviously I need to be careful so I don't to blow the mailbox away :-)

"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.

This should do for the deleted items:

Get-Mailbox user1 | Export-Mailbox -DeleteContent -IncludeFolders "\deleted items"

The junk folder should be similar "junk items" or something like that.

By following above make sure you set Retention of deleted items to 0 else once recovery dumpster is full no e-mails will be deleted. Once all unwanted e-mails are deleted then change retention of deleted items.
