I had all my databases gets corrupted- I have created a new store but I can not delete the old databases because they can't be mounted- especially big for public folders becuase I have several mail enabled folders.

the server cannot verify that no mailboxes reside on the database
you need to use adsiedit

configuration - services - microsoft exchange - org name - databases
