Copy/Paste the script into a file, call it what you want, something like, "rm_message.sh". The syntax using the script would be something like:
 
<code><pre>./rm_message.sh user@domain.com subjectName</pre></code>
 
 
 
If the subject contains more than one word, put double quotes around the subject.
 
<code><pre>./rm_message.sh user@domain.com "Hello World"</pre></code>
 
 
 
Special thanks to Matt Fox.
