Remove a single email from all mailboxes in Exchange 2007 SP1


  • Hello all,

    I am looking to see if there is a way that you can in Exchange 2007 SP1 remove a single email message from every mailbox. I've found that you could use ExMerge in Exchange 2003 to accomplish this, but there doesn't appear to be any MS supported ways to do so with Exchange 2007 that I have been able to find.

    We have tried using the recall message feature in Outlook 2007, but we all know that the failure rate on that is pretty high. I am basically just looking for a quick way either through Power Shell or the Exchange GUI to be able to remove one email from every all mailboxes hosted on the Exchange server.

    Any suggestions and/or ideas? Or is this even possible in Exchange 2007 SP1? Thanks in advance!

  • I found the answer to this finally. Sorry for the post!

    The answer I was looking for was the Export-Mailbox cmdlet.
