as a test we set up an inbound news feed. we now have 30,000 newsgroups (all stored in their own folder in "public folders") and have no way of deleting them except one by one through the exchange system manager! there is no "select all" option in there, and of course i cant manually delete the folders from the "M" drive due to access restrictions. someone please help.

There is a vbs script named rgroup.vbs that is excactly what you are looking for. You will need to export the names of the newsgroups you wish to delete, then run rgroup.vbs -t d -g news.groupname.2bedeleted. I suggest writing a batch file because the script only takes one newsgroup at a time. You can find out more about the script using the help via ESM.
Hope this helps.
