Exchange 2013 - Mailbox permissions inherited from server, how to remove

I noticed mailboxes have inherited permissions for a BES service account. This account is no longer needed. I tracked the inheritance up to the Server permissions in ADSIEDIT.
How did this get there, and should I simply delete it from ADSIEDIT?

The BES account may have been there because at some point they were using BES for the black berry devices and the BES server needed access to Exchange. Now if you no longer need it, then it is ok to remove it, but to be honest I would just leave it because it doesn't bother anything. If you want to remove it completely, then yes it will be done via ADSI edit, but I would personally not bother with it. Make sure you delete it properly from ADSI if you choose to go that route.
