i have stupidly removed some old users from ad rather than deleting them via our exchange 2010 server.

i now find that i cannot delete the mailbox.

can anyone advise how i can delete a mailbox where the ad user has bern removed? do i need to do this via the exchange cmd shell or can i still do it via the exchange management shell?

any advice much appreciated.
