I need to remove a legacy Exchange 2013....
Deleting the last database from this server, i get the error that “This mailbox database contains one or more mailboxes…”..

I followed this article:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2014/03/17/this-mailbox-database-contains-one-or-more-mailboxes.aspx

I have no more "things" in the database, still I cannot deleted it....  what else can I try?

I have a blog posting on this which I really need to complete.
It will be one of these:

get-mailbox -database "Databasename"
get-mailbox -database "Databasename" -archive
get-mailbox -database "Databasename" -arbitration
get-mailbox -database "Databasename" -publicfolder
get-mailbox -database "Databasename" -monitoring
get-mailbox -database "Databasename" -auditlog

If you get one with a mailbox returned, that is what you need to move.
