Required Parameters

-Identities

The Identities parameter identifies quarantined messages for bulk operations. You identify the messages by using the syntax: value1,value2...valueN. The value is a unique quarantined message identifier in the format GUID1\GUID2 (for example c14401cf-aa9a-465b-cfd5-08d0f0ca37c5\4c2ca98e-94ea-db3a-7eb8-3b63657d4db7.

You can find the identity value for a quarantined message by using the Get-QuarantineMessage cmdlet.

When you use this parameter, the Identity parameter is required, but the value is ignored. For example, use the value 000 for the Identity parameter.

Type:QuarantineMessageIdentity[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online Protection

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the quarantined message that you want to delete. The value is a unique quarantined message identifier in the format GUID1\GUID2 (for example c14401cf-aa9a-465b-cfd5-08d0f0ca37c5\4c2ca98e-94ea-db3a-7eb8-3b63657d4db7.

You can find the Identity value for a quarantined message by using the Get-QuarantineMessage cmdlet.

Type:QuarantineMessageIdentity
