Exchange 2010 delete-mailbox

I have a user, whose mailbox I want to delete.  They are still in Active Directory and have an external mail box for their SMTP address and have no need for a mail box on our server.  The user is not found in exchange system manager.  using delete-mailbox tells me the user isnt listed in active directory. I see the user in AD Users and computers.  How can I delete this mailbox and not the user from AD?

If you can't find the mailbox in the EMC and remove-mailbox tells you the object can't be found, did this user have a mailbox to begin with? Seems like it already doesn't exist?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
