Exchange mailbox will not delete (exchange 2003)

AZCS asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
A user's email was all messed up and probably corrupted, I backed up the data to a pst then tried to delete the mailbox in exchange system manager.

However the mailbox doesn't deletet.

Things i have done:
Purged the mailbox, rebooted  the server, ran the cleanup agent, even changed the time exchange keeps deleted mailboxes to 0.

The mail box is still there has a red x in one corner, but not gone.

So i can't recreate a new mailbox for the user since the old one is still there.

Any ideas?
