In MS Exchange 2003, when you deleted a mailbox, it was easy to permanently delete the mailbox by right clicking on the server and running a wizard. This doesn't seem to exist in the management console for Exchange 2007. I now have a mailbox that is in the Disconnected Mailbox under Recipient Configuration, and is orphaned (no AD account anymore), and I can't get rid of the mailbox permanently. Is anybody able to assist?

Thanks in advance

I managed to get this done by choosing the "Remove" option in Exchange Management Console, then using the following script.

Get-MailboxStatistics -database "%SERVERNAME%\%MAILBOXDBNAME%" | where {$_.disconnectdate -ne $null} | foreach {Remove-mailbox -database $_.database -storemailboxidentity $_.mailboxguid}

This worked a treat
