Performing a remote wipe of a device associated with a mailbox in Exchange 2007, 2010, 2013+

Exchange 2007 - 2010:

To view all devices associated with a specific mailbox we can issue:
Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox ""

and then to once you have found the relevant device - take a note of its "Identity" and run the following to remotely wipe the device when it next syncs with Exchange:

Clear-ActiveSyncDevice -Identity " ../My User/ExchangeActvieSyncDevices/iPad"

Exchange 2013 and above:

The commands have changed with the release of Exchange 2013 - to list mobile devices associated with a mailbox we can issue:

Get-MobileDevice -Identity "MyUser"

and to clear it we can issue:

Clear-MobileDevice -Identity User1iPad -NotificationEmailAddresses ""

For security purposes you will need to remove the device after the device has been successfully wiped. To do this we can run:

Remove-ActiveSyncDevice -Identity " ../My User/ExchangeActvieSyncDevices/iPad"


Remove-MobileDevice -Identity User1iPad
