re: The following is a message that pops up on the screen when a user tries
to remove a subscriber with dependent mailboxes ...

Consider that "mailboxes" are being removed and not "subscribers." How
about "There are dependent mailboxes for this mailbox that must be removed
before this one can be removed." Hopefully the system can list the
dependents, and if so, the sentence can be "The following dependent
mailboxes for this mailbox must be removed before this one can be removed."
Too bad about this system--reminds me of the old days when you had to erase
all the files in a subdirectory prior to erasing the subdirectory.
