  • How Can I Delete SIDs manually?

    Hello; I would want to delete a user account / attributes thoroughly from my Active Directory and then have the chance to re-use that same name. If I remove exchange attributes in Active Directory, emails accounts (Distribution Groups) using that same name would be bounced back to the sender with A Non-Delivery Reply.
    I would want to manually remove all the entries for that user account. How can I go about that in Active Directory?.

    So that we may better understand your requirement, why is it not sufficient to simply delete objects in ADUC and leave AD to handle garbage collection by itself?
