Exch2010 remove mailbox without deleting windows AD user?

Last Modified: 2016-01-08
In sbs2011/exchange2010 EMC, removing a mailbox requires deleting the AD user object.

we have a scenario where the windows user needs to stay as domain user eg. to use file share resources.

we could Remove in EMC and subsequently re-create as 'New Mail User' but this would break the original windows a/c?

How can we remove mailbox without deleting windows AD user?
