Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Set the Mailbox retention to zero.
Apply.
Delete the AD/mailbox.

If you already did the deletion, then you have to run the cleanup agent on the mailbox store.

then, the mailbox will get a red ‘x’ on it, you can right click it and PURGE.

    Rather than changing your mail retention policy for all users...Through Exchange System Manager, find the mailbox, right click, select purge, then right click on mailbox store and run cleanup agent.
