I have an old exchange 2000 server SP3 that I would like to permanently uninstall.   However on this server I have one remaining orphan mailbox that I cannot delete.  I need to be able to somehow delete this mailbox.  

I have already tried doing the following:
Removing the orphaned mailbox by using Exchange maintenance.
Removing the orphaned mailbox manually by running the clean up agent.

The mailbox is not attached to any user object and the mailbox migration wizard does not work.

I have also tried completely deleting the database store which this mailbox is hosted, which I wasnt able to do.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

THX in advance.
