Uninstall Exchange 2010 from Network

I was setting up my NEW 2010 exchange server so that I could migrate from my 2003 server.  Somehow I screwed everything up and I now like to remove the exchange server.  I am running a Uninstall an I was able to remove the HUB Transpost, the Client Access rool but I cannot remove the Mailboxes.
I get error:

Depending on the version of Exchange 2010 you installed, you may need to remove the arbitration mailbox via ADSIEdit before uninstalling the mailbox role.

What do you get if you do a "get-mailbox -server Broken2010Server"?
