Check at the root level in AD for your domain

I am not really familar at all with Exchange 2K however
 - the 2 S-1-5 account are generally old accounts which have been remote or deleted somehow. They have been assigned privalages to access these files but have since been deleted. This is how it generally is for most files, but I am not sure if maybe there is some "built-in" accounts like this for Exchange 2K.
 - If they are inherited, they are usually inherited from the folder above it. Most of the time when you change a folder permission on a top folder, you can set it to change permissions on those underneith.
WARNING: THIS MIGHT BREAK YOUR SYSTEM
 - to change settings and remote
 - Right Click item, Properties, Security Advanced, Owner - assign yourself
 - Go to Permissions, change permissions remove all enteries and disable inherited, then add your user with full control.
 - Close down, go back in there and you should be able to delete
NOTE: Windows may stop you from doing this because it might break something.

You might need to use PFDAVAdmin tool to reapply the permission again

You will need to use ADSIEDIT to edit the permissions for the Exchange organization.  Adsiedit is one of the tools that are installed with the Support Tools from the Windows 2003 or 2008 CD. They can be installed from the Support/Tools folder on the installation CD.  Once you have the tools installed, click Start/Run and type "adsiedit.msc."CAUTION: USING THE ADSIEDIT TOOL IS DANGEROUS!!! YOU MUST BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU CHANGE WHEN USING THIS TOOL, AS IT COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO ACTIVE DIRECTORY PERMISSIONS. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Once you have adsiedit.msc open, navigate to the following location:

Configuration [domain]/CN=Configuration/CN=Services/CN=Microsoft Exchange/CN=[Org name]/CN=Administrative Groups/[Group Name]

Right-click, go to Properties and click the Security tab. Look to see if those user accounts are there. If they are, you should be able to delete them.
