You may receive error message “The property keyword isn’t supported” when run cmdlet below to delete mail content from user mailbox’s.
If you see in cmdlet in above screen, I have done search query based on Subject :”FW: Full BAckups Report.” which is an forwarded message by other mailbox. in Serach-mailbox cmdlet search scope is very restricitive and can be use with very care. In above cmdlet if i remove part “FW:” then it works. So you need to make sure valid search query if you see this error in search-mailbox.

You have to be assigned the following roles to search for and delete messages in users’ mailboxes which is notassisgn by default to any security role group:
- Mailbox Search This role allows you to search for messages across multiple mailboxes in your organisation. Administrators aren’t assigned this role by default. To search multiple mailboxes, add yourself as a member of the Discovery Management role group.
- Mailbox Import Export This role allows you to delete messages from a user’s mailbox. This role isn’t assigned to administrators by default. To delete messages from users’ mailboxes, add the Mailbox Import Export role to the Organisation Management role group.
Exchange 2010 SP2 This worked no errors:
Use any identifer to get the mailbox group you want: Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited or -idenity or whatever..,
get-mailbox -OrganizationalUnit “Cheese.dom/SpecialAccess/Awsome/Users” | Search-Mailbox -SearchQuery subject:’Party in the Office’,from:’Bob@Cheese.dom’ -DeleteContent
Yes, I came to know later :). My test was with Exchange 2010 SP1. Thanks for sharing !!!!
Do not know why but property keywords are localized: for example in a localized IT-it system -SearchQuery subject:xxx became -SearchQuery oggetto:xxx
