Run the cleanup agent (by right clicking on mailbox stores folder) then, when that is done, purge the orphaned mailbox.

Open Active Directory Users and Computers on the Exchange server, or on a server that has the Exchange management snap-in installed, then:

Right Click -> Exchange Tasks -> Remove Exchange E-Mail Box

I think he's already deleted the user, so has nothing to click on in ADUC.

:o) Go to Exchage system manager and select Server, then First storage group, then mailboxes. Find the mailbox and right click it then select Purge mailbox

Hi tabush

If this user is using alot of space in the Exchange store also, it may be necessary to purge the 'white space' in the database. For example, if the user has a few gigs of space of emails, you will need to do an offline defrag of the database to clean up any remaining space in the database. After deleting alot of mailboxes, the database would remain the same size as before deleting the mailboxes unless defragmented.

Just something that is good to know.

As far as the offline defrag is concerned, here is a good article detailed why and when to run it:
