Deleting Mailboxes with no eDir account

I have just done a major cull of students who have left the college, and I used LDAP (Apache Directory Studio), cos it is so much more flexible than C1. Now I have a bunch of GW2012SP1 mailboxes that are orphaned, no corresponding eDir account.
Is there a way to flag, or show these mailboxes so i can delete them? Or is there a way to run some sort of maintenance on the PO to achieve this?
Thanks.

About all I can think of is to "graft" users and have the unmatched users
written to a text file so you can then delete them.

Jrbutilities might be able to do something, but I'm not certain.

Thanks, Danita.
In the end, since I had a list of the affected accounts, I went through and disassociated the PO for each in C1( They wouldn't delete because of the missing eDir associations). Then, but adding the column 'Distinguished Name', I could go through easily and slect all the accounts, in C1, and delete en-masse.
Not pretty, but the job is done. I'll have to work out a better way next year .. if only I could script this stuff?

Thanks for the replies ..

* mickers,

in Console One, go to the Groupwise view, then "View", "Edit Columns" and add the one showing the network ID. Maybe it is blank for those users without an edir account.

You can script it. I wrote an introduction to scripting GroupWise administration - Scripting GroupWise | Novell User Communities. Although the article only shows how to export from the GroupWise directory the GroupWise Administrative Object API supports methods for adding, modifying and deleting users.
