Force removal of Exchange from the system manager

I had a problem with my exchange 2003 server databse due to power failure and some of the Mailbox store were damaged.
I did try to fix them but one of them could not be mount anymore.
After i did a new server and moved all the mailboxes to it, those who had Mailboxes in this store i did create new Mailboxex for them and now everything is ok except the server itself.
I have tried to remove the exchange from add remove, but i couldnt because of an error users still have Mailboxes on it. After several trials i was so pissed that i did deletedeverything on this server, formated it and still i cant remove its name from the System Manager.

Is there a way that i can delete the server name from the system manager. when i try to remove it still iget the same error users still have mailbox on it where in fact the server doesnt exist anymore.
