Delete multiple AD users with or without mailbox


We have a monthly report that requires users to get deleted from our domain. I have modified the report to output the SamAccountName to a CSV.  I'm trying to find a simple way to delete multiple AD accounts that may or may not have mailboxes.

I found this great article but it only seems to work if the user has a mailbox. I'm wondering if anyone can expand on it or suggest something simpler.

It really should not matter if the user has a mailbox or not because ultimately if you delete an AD Account with a mailbox the mailbox goes into a disconnected state and is purged after X days (default 60).

Use the following command below....
Import-module activedirectory
$Users = import-csv "c:\filename.csv"
ForEach ($User in $Users) {
Remove-ADUser -Identity $User.samaccountname -confirm:$false

Open in new window

That should do it.
