I found a script using Technet and Google.

$outlook = New-Object -comObject Outlook.Application 

$olJunk = $outlook.Session.GetDefaultFolder(23)  

$($olJunk.Items) | %{$_.Delete()} 

It turns out it does actually empty the junk mail folder.  I guess each default folder is assigned a numerical value.

What I'm looking for is a way to actually backup the folder contents before the delete.  In a sense doing the equivalent of a pst backup using powershell.  I'm hoping I can get powershell to select the folder and mimic the action of a Import/Export to .pst.

I don't even know if this is possible, anyone have any ideas?  Thanks...
