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

Open the Microsoft Exchange Management Shell
Start > All Programs > Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 > Microsoft Exchange Management Shell
List all disconnected mailboxes
Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid
Removing a single entry
Remove-Mailbox -Database <Database-Name> -StoreMailboxIdentity <MailboxGuid> -confirm:$false
Removing all users at the same time
$users = Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

Now that we have all disconnected mailboxes in a var, we can run the following cmdlet to remove all of them:

$users | ForEach { Remove-Mailbox -Database “Mailbox Database” -StoreMailboxIdentity $_.MailboxGuid -confirm:$false }
