Well, if you're sure that the mail store is completely empty, you can always
stop the service, remove the edb and stm files for that db, and restart the
service.  That will cause an empty store to be created in it's place.
More likely though, there is some replication latency you need to deal with.
Have you verified all domain controllers are aware of the moved mailboxes
Have you seen this?;en-us;822931

Subject: [exchangelist] Removal of Exchange Server 2003

I am having trouble removing Exchange Server 2003.  Receive an error
relating to mailboxes are in use on the server - this is not true.  LDAP
query resolves just the three norm mailboxes:  SMTP; System Attendant, and
SystemMailbox - System Managers yields the same result.  SystemMailBox is
the oly box with content.  I've detached, and deleted from within System
Manager - same error.

Any thoughts before I spend $245.
