Removing disconnected mailboxes in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Today I find long list of disabled mailboxes in the HC panel under couple of domains how can I remove them all at once in Exchange Server, obviously there is an option to remove one by one but its difficult to remove more than 100 accounts.
