I have a mailbox database from which all mailboxes have been removed to a different database.  I want to remove the first to free up space.  What's the proper procedure?  Thank you.

Just right click on the database in EMC and choose Delete. If there is anything stopping you then it will refuse to allow you to delete it. After deleting it from Exchange, delete the physical files and logs.
