Check for Audit mailbox too

Get-Mailbox -AuditLog -Database <DatabaseName>

Also  rather deleting these system mailboxes I would suggest to move them in any other server if you have.

Try running below CMD:

Get-Mailbox -AuditLog -Database <DatabaseName> |  New-MoveRequest –TargetDatabase <Target Databse Name>

and keep checking the move status

What about If I don't have a target database ? I only have a single database
Run the below cmd

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq "UserMailbox"} | Format-List Name,Audit*

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq "UserMailbox"} | Set-Mailbox --AuditEnabled $false


Get-Mailbox -Arbitration -Database <MailboxDatabase> | Disable-Mailbox -Arbitration -DisableLastArbitrationMailboxAllowed

Get-Mailbox -Arbitration -Database <MailboxDatabase> | Disable-Mailbox

Then try to remove it
Hi

       For the "UserMailbox" , does it mean the "systemMailbox" ? if yes, how i can check the full name of the SystemMailbox ?
