Is there a way for admin to delete a message from all recipients' inboxes (read or unread doesn't matter)? 

I have tried deleting a  message with gmail api with message id and it works well. But that deletes from my inbox only.

Regards,
Sarvesh.

Hi Sarvesh,

This should work, where the <message ID> is something like RCexxxxxx...@mail.gmail.comRCexxxxxx...@google.com or RCexxxxxx...@ismtpd0001p1lon1.sendgrid.net depending on what created the email.

gam all users delete messages query "rfc822msgid:<message ID>" doit

Cheers

James

Sarvesh,

The command James shows will do what you want. GAM always includes all folders in this case, including Spam and Trash.
