One question that seems to come up a lot is "How can I delete a single message or set of messages from all mailboxes?" Deleting hundreds or thousands of specific unwanted messages from hundreds of mailboxes found on many Exchange servers is sure to give a good headache to any system administrator. This question gets asked for many reasons, however the most common ones that we hear time and again are:
Someone sent an email or appointment to the wrong group of 200 people.
Messages in your system contain attachments that you do not want your users storing in email such as MP3, AVI, etc.
We need to stop someone from reading an email message sent by mistake (assuming he or she didn't open his or her mailbox yet).
We need to remove messages with viruses or infected attachments.
Luckily you can utilize the power of DigiScope® to Delete or Purge these messages all with incredible speed (and they do not need to be email messages. In fact you can use DigiScope® to Delete or Purge any kind of object found inside your mailbox folders).
NOTE: You may use DigiScope® to Delete or Purge folders, however, you may not Delete or Purge native / root level mailbox folders, i.e. Inbox, Sent, Calendars or other native folders.
NOTE: The Delete and Purge data options are very powerful features and therefore great care and consideration should be taken BEFORE executing either function in a Production environment. Test it out thoroughly before using on "live" mailboxes and always do a backup of your data before using Delete Data or Purge Data options.
