Delete or recall spam from all Notes user mailboxes

Is it possible to select a spam message in a user's IBM Notes mailbox which can be deleted or recalled from all user mailboxes?

 

The spam filters in my customer's Domino environment does not detect every spam message at 100% accuracy, so obviously the users are receiving phishing and malware spam.  This can lead to total network infection especially if one of those users has a high level Windows admin account.  

 

I couldn't find a feature natively in the the Domino Administrator client, and I was unsuccessful searching the IBM developerWorks Domino forums and wikis for a solution.

 

My customers are using various spam solutions as seen below, but I still need a way to "search & destroy" spam from all user mailboxes. :)  Thanks in advance.

 

FYI

• IBM Lotus Protector for Mail Security (LPMS)
• Symantec Mail Security for Domino (SMS)
• Trend Micro ScanMail Suite for IBM Domino
• SpamSentinel for Domino
• Trend Micro Hosted Email Security
• Symantec Messaging Gateway
• Apache SpamAssassin
• Clearswift MailSweeper
• Cisco Email Security

ADMIN this is spam, the spam has been posted to a few forums.
David does this every few months.  

He didn't "I just found the tool below on IBM GSD." he owns the company that makes the tool.

Hi Carl Tyler

1.  There are no posts on this forum which can remove spam from all Notes user mailboxes, hence, the reason for my post.

 

2  This should be a native feature of the Domino message system.  However, it is just another reason to migrate to a new message system.  I am trying to keep customers on Domino, not migrate away.  Exchange requires the admin to use PowerShell, so we are ahead of the game if there is an easy solution for a basic Domino admin or non-technical IT help desk user.

 

3.  Basic message recall was available since Exchange 98, but Domino didn't implement until Release 8 in August 2007 which was disapointing to wait so long for such a basic feature.
