Exchange 2010 Uninstall (Forced to manually uninstall?)

I have tried to uninstall our Exchange Server, because we have moved to Office 365.

But before I could uninstall, my Exchange server said i needed to delete the SystemMailbox Users, so I did that.
 After that it said I needed to delete all of my Mailbox Export Request, but I can't delete them, without the System Mailbox User...

I tried to recreate them with the command "setup.com /preparead" without luck. The new accounts gets new names, and then the mailbox requests won't recognise them.  

Is there any way I can delete these mailbox requests without having the System Mailbox Users?

Regards Nicolai.

See if you can remove the requsts with ADSIEdit.

Go to below location in ADSIEDIT and check if the export requests show there.

CN=MailboxExportRequests, CN=Mailbox Replication,CN=YOUR EXCHANGE ORG,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com
