After moving a mailbox you notice there is no extra whitespace on the old database. The reason is that Exchange didn't deleted the mailbox from the old database yet. The mailbox will be deleted after the specfied retension policy. You can force de deletion if you need the space at once.

First check the white space:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | Select Servername, Name, AvailableNewMailboxSpace

Force a purge of the database:

Clean-MailboxDatabase "Mailbox Database"

Get the mailbox guid of the softdeleted mailbox:

Get-MailboxStatistics –Database "Mailbox Database" | where-object { $_.DisconnectReason –eq "Softdeleted" } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

Now you will see the user and the mailbox guid you just moved. To delete the mailbox use following command:

Remove-StoreMailbox –Database "Mailbox Database" –identity <mailboxguid> –MailboxState Softdeleted
