How do I remove old Exchange information from an AD user account?

I assigned an Exchange 2000 mailbox to a Win2k AD user. Then, later on, I removed the Exchange Server. The problem that I have now is that the user account still has the old Exchange information under the "Exchange General" tab. How do I remove this old Exchange information?

Running the Mailbox Cleanup Agent may correct this for you. To do this, bring up Exchange System Manager, and navigate to the Information Store containing the mailbox in question. Then, right-click on Mailboxes and select Run Cleanup Agent. When the process has finished, check to see if you still have the old information present. If you do, you may have some replication issues that need to worked out, as well.
