Removing Messages with Zmmailbox based on the Subject

#!/bin/bash
# rm_message.sh user@domain.com subject
if [ -z "$2" ]; then
echo "usage:  rm_message.sh user@domain.com <subject>"
exit 0
else
addr=$1
subject=$2
echo "Searching $addr  for Subject:  $subject"
for msg in `zmmailbox -z -m "$addr" s -l 999 -t message "subject:$subject"|awk '{ if (NR!=1) {print}}' | grep -v -e Id -e "-" -e "^$" | awk '{ print $2 }'`
  do
echo "Removing "$msg""
zmmailbox -z -m $1 dm $msg
done
fi

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:

./rm_message.sh user@domain.com subjectName

If the subject contains more than one word, put double quotes around the subject.

./rm_message.sh user@domain.com "Hello World"
