unable to find disabled mailbox in the disconnected mailboxes - exchanged 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I disabled an important mailbox and it is not appearing in the disconnected mailbox. To test another account, I used test01 and it appeared in the disconnected mailbox, I tested with test02 and that account does not appear in the disconnected mailbox .

    I tried running the command Get statistics and it does not appear. How long should I wait, the test01 appeared in the next few second it got disabled.

  • Try running:

    get-mailboxdatabase | clean-mailboxdatabase

    This will run this switch on all the databases (no harm) and then I am sure that you will definately see the mailbox in the disconnect mailboxes (if it is not out of the retaintion period)

  • Thank you Vinit, get-mailboxdatabase | clean-mailboxdatabase worked out great for me.

    I tried just using clean-mailboxdatabase, and I didn't get the results I desired.
