Deleting email through content search not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a content search in the Security and Compliance center that successfully ran and found the emails I wanted to remove.  I connected to the Security and Compliance center through powershell and ran: "New-ComplianceSearchAction -SearchName "Email Search" -Purge -PurgeType Softdelete"

    The compliance search action completed, but the emails are still sitting in the Inbox.  I'm assigned the global admin role as well as compliance search and mailbox import/export.

  • I found the issue:  Note that a maximum of 10 items per mailbox can be removed at one time.

    I didn't notice that only 10 of the emails were being deleted at a time.
