One is on the todo list. Not there yet.

# cd $archive
# rm -f `grep 'upcoming meeting' *|cut -d: -f1`

:) While this will work, I don't recommend it. If you have a copy of the contents in mailbox format then just remove the messages from the mailbox file and rebuild the archive.

:) It's the outcome that gets a bit problematic. ;)
