Deleted mailboxes will not appear in EMC

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 5:30 pm

if you accidently delete user mailbox from EMC or got confused about Disable & Remote and clicked on remove for particular user and now needing to get the mailbox yet able to see it under disconnected mailbox , recipient configuration?




** Deleted mailbox will be visible after online maintenance runs and completes** so if you do not want to wait and wish to re-connect the disconnected mailbox to another AD user object here is what you need to do run Clean-MailboxDatabase  CMDLET.


Get-Mailboxdatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase

This will clean  all DBs in given  SMTP organization.

My mail server name is mail2 , I would use fallowing CMDLET, substitute mail2 to your own mail server name.


Get-Mailboxdatabase | Where{ $_.Server –eq “mail2”}| clean-MailboxDatabase
