I went to delete a user from our active directory. As you have to create the user and mailbox separately in Exchange 2010 I figured the same held true for deleting a user and their mailbox. Anyway, I deleted the user in Active Directory and then went to delete the users mailbox and got the following error message:
The operation couldn't be performed because object  '' couldn't be found on 'domain controller'.
How do I go about deleting a mailbox that no longer is associated with a user?
