Title says it all. I removed a number of users who are no longer here, they don't show up in AD, or EMC, but when I run Get-MailboxStatistics, they are still there. It's annoying because some of their mailboxes are 10+GB.

Additionally, I know that some users have gone in and deleted 5-10GB of data from their Outlook folders, but Get-MailboxStatistics doesn't reflect this. Any idea why? How to sync them up?

Are they disconnected users that haven't been deleted until the 30 days is up?

The ones that have deleted large chunks of their mail are active users. They went into large mail and clearly deleted GB's of data. The others, I removed from Exchange and AD, but they still show up. It hasn't been 30 days yet though, so maybe that is part of it? – McB Jan 11 '13 at 19:01
