I have a 2003 network with DC, workstation and Exchange 2003.  I had to do a fresh install on the Exchange server but forgot to move the mailbox for the administrator account.  Now after the new installation, my admin account is showing up in properties of active directory still pointing to it's old account from the previous exchange server.

How do I "release" this account and have it's mailbox show up on the new exchange server?
