I wanted to delete a user on Active Directory & Exchange.

In my stupidity I deleted the AD entry first. Now when I try to delete the Exchange mailbox it won't allow it as it can't find an AD entry.

How can I delete the mailbox?

Please connect to an AD server whose Deleted Objects container and Click Restore Deleted Objects on the Server toolbar to launch the AD Tumbstone Manager. You could run the Cleanup Agent, and then you will be able to delete the mailbox.
