If its listed in ESM you can right click and choose delete.
You can also use adsi edit

and a final option is to rebuild as stated by Sembee in the 3rd post of this thread

Thanks for your reaction dariusg but that is for Exchange 2003 and is very different from Exchange 2007

darius post links to MS sites to basically uninstall exchange 2k7.  My assumption is that the machine is completely crashed and not coming back so uninstalling exchange is not possible.

Sorry for the late reaction (vacation :-)

Ryansoto is wright, de server is crashed and is not reinstalled in AD and will not be reused because of his age.
We configured a brand new server with a different name and is successfully participating in AD.
Ive been able to remove the crashed mailserver out of AD but it still keeps his presents in the Exchange Managment Console under Server Configuration/ Mailbox

Does anyone have some other suggestions?

Thanks!

All the links I posted should solve your issue.  One of the links I posted was from Sembee who is the resident genius on many subjects including exchange.
