Confirm there are no mailboxes associated with a Database Exchange 2010

I would like to confirm that there are NO mailboxes associated with a datastore/database before I unmount it.  I am trying to cleanup what an old admin did.

If you don't see any users with that database name then you should be good to go. However, there may be a Arbitration Mailbox on that database, especially if it is the first database that was in the environment. Check this article on how to find that.

Otherwise you should be good to dismount.

If you want to check from EMC.

Recipient Configuration =>> Mailbox.

Then go to the View menu >> Add/Remove Columns.

Add the "Database" column. Click Ok. You can then sort this column alphabetically.

I did do that and saw no mailbox associated with that database.  

Should I un-mount the database first to see if that causes any issues?  I know that you can name a DB anything, however this setup was a port over from Exchange 2003 and the database of concern is called Archive1.  We do not do any archiving here.
