Can't remove emailed message in Teams Channel. No delete options.

Copper Contributor

I had a user accidentally email the general channel in our main firm's team but there is no way, that I can see, to delete it. There is no "three dots" option on only this message. The sender is not able to delete it, not an owner but still the creator, and I as an owner am unable to delete it.

I am able to remove any other message, as owner and as a global admin on our tenet.  I have the global messaging policy in the Teams admin center to allow owners to delete messages - but there is no option that I can use to remove this message.  Is there anything else that can be done to remove this message?  Is there a PowerShell option that I can use to do it from a script?

Hi Therese. I have done many lookups on this. The details that I included in my original post were added because all of the searches I have done have suggested that I do all of the things that I have already done.
