Delete Email Message

Exchange 5.5 SP 4
I had a user accidentally send an email message to a LARGE DL.  Needless to 
say everyone that received the message in error is "replying to all" 
generating thousands of worthless emails.  Is there anything that can be done 
to automatically delete this email from user mailboxes based on subject line 
or something.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

open the sending mailbox, go to sent items and locate the message, open it,
go to actions -> recall massege. this will mark the messege for deletion,
and any try to open the messege by people who hevent read the messege, will
cause the deletion of the Email.

We had a similar problem and using Exmerge was our solution. To prevent the
problem, make sure you lock down large DLs so that only certain users can
send to them.

Downloading Old Emails
Outlook (2003) keeps downloading emails from my account that it has already downloaded. I have changed any settings and I've checked the settings I do have and I can't figure out why it does this.

I went on to the server and deleted them. But it's still doing it for the new emails I received after that. It just started doing this a couple weeks ago.
