AndyGJones -> Mass deleting public folder posts (20.Nov.2007 7:41:50 AM)

Hi, I have a rather annoying problem relating to the way we use public folders here. There is a script attatched to exchange that runs on every incoming message and assigns it to a public folder (we use it to store messages from clients). This has been running fine for a number of years, but it seems like at some point last month it got a message that caused it to a few problems. The mesasage ended up in a number of public folders, and duplicated many thousands of times.

I was wondering if there is a way of mass deleting these files? Its not feasible to delete them from outlook as it takes hours to open an affected public folder, never mind select and delete them!

The messages are all the same, so it should be possible to write a vbscript or something to remove it, but I havn't really looked at this route yet.

Any help much appreciated.
