Active Directory Anonymous User and Exchange Mailbox

Active Directory has a system Anonymous User account and Exchange mailbox that I am curious to see if it is still required. I remember this was inherited back from when the domain was on Windows 2003 and now on Windows 2012 not sure if it still needs to be kept around or it can be removed or disabled or even just have the mailbox removed.

The event log on a few Windows domain computers shows ANONYMOUS LOGON as the user most recently. Is that different from the Anonymous User?

are you talking about this in the logs?
NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON

Open in new window

that is just saying an anonymous session has been past to the server it's not the user name
