Auto-Decline WSUS Windows Embedded Updates

I decided to take the script to decline Itanium updates that I posted recently to the next level, and tweaked it to also remove Windows Embedded updates. Here is the script that I'm running now:

$WsusServer = ""
$UseSSL = $false
$PortNumber = 80
$TrialRun = $false #change this to $true to see what it will effect!

#E-mail Configuration
$SMTPServer = ""
$FromAddress = ""
$Recipients = ""
$MessageSubject = "PS Report - Declining Itanium/Embedded Updates"

Function SendEmailStatus($MessageSubject, $MessageBody)
$SMTPMessage = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage $FromAddress, $Recipients, $MessageSubject, $MessageBody
$SMTPMessage.IsBodyHTML = $true
#Send the message via the local SMTP Server
$SMTPClient = New-Object System.Net.Mail.SMTPClient $SMTPServer
rv SMTPClient
rv SMTPMessage

#Connect to the WSUS 3.0 interface.
[reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration") | out-null
$WsusServerAdminProxy = [Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.AdminProxy]::GetUpdateServer($WsusServer,$UseSSL,$PortNumber);

#$itanium = $WsusServerAdminProxy.SearchUpdates('Itanium') | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined}
#$itanium += $WsusServerAdminProxy.SearchUpdates('ia64') | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined}
#Although the above seems faster it also seaches in the description of the update so use the below just to search the title!
$itanium = $WsusServerAdminProxy.GetUpdates() | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined -and $_.Title -match "ia64|itanium"}
$itanium += $WsusServerAdminProxy.GetUpdates() | ?{-not $_.IsDeclined -and $_.Title -match "Embedded Standard 7"}
If ($TrialRun)
{$MessageSubject += " Trial Run"}
{$itanium | %{$_.Decline()}}

$Style = "<Style>BODY{font-size:11px;font-family:verdana,sans-serif;color:navy;font-weight:normal;}" + `
"TABLE{border-width:1px;cellpadding=10;border-style:solid;border-color:navy;border-collapse:collapse;}" + `
"TH{font-size:12px;border-width:1px;padding:10px;border-style:solid;border-color:navy;}" + `

If ($itanium.Count -gt 0)
$MessageBody = $itanium | Select `
@{Name="KB Article";Expression={[string]::join(' | ',$_.KnowledgebaseArticles)}},`
@{Name="Product Title";Expression={[string]::join(' | ',$_.ProductTitles)}},`
@{Name="Product Family";Expression={[string]::join(' | ',$_.ProductFamilyTitles)}},`
@{Name="Uninstallation Supported";Expression={[string]$_.UninstallationBehavior.IsSupported}} | ConvertTo-HTML -head $Style
SendEmailStatus $MessageSubject $MessageBody

Again, I can't take credit for the script itself; that honor belongs to ...... whoever submitted it to this technet page.
