Exchange 2010 deleted users mailbox missing

    Question

  • Hi All

    We have 2 AD servers with Server 2008 R2, Exchange 2010 on Server 2008 R2.

    We have deleted a user from AD and the mailbox did not go into a disconnected state.

    There are no errors in the event log.

    I do have a backup which will be about 8 hours old but i want to know why it didnt go into a disconnected state? Has anyone come across this or have i done something wrong?

  • If you want the mailbox to show in the Disconnect Mailboxes right away run:  Clean-MailboxDatabase "DatabaseName" from the EMS.  Then refresh the Disconnected Mailbox node.  This process runs nightly during the maintenance window.

    Try running the clean-mailbox cmdlet. Or just wait for the IS service
    to recognize that the mailbox no longer has a user object in the AD.
