Not applicable - in step 1 it references deleteing the mailbox from the user account in AD.  That user account was already deleted.

Just skip step 1, the article still seems valid for your question

Also this article describes how to recover a deleted AD account if that is something you want to do

nevermind - I figured it out.

I just had to run the cleanup agent first then the document worked fine.

Thanks!
