  • Hey Vinod,

     

    Is “Do not permanently delete items until the database has been backed up” option selected in Mailbox Database Properties -> Limits tab, if yes then it wouldn’t be deleted until full backup runs.

     

    Reference:

    Mailbox Database Properties > Limits Tab

     

    You can remove it manually with Remove-Mailbox command.

     

    $Temp = Get-MailboxStatistics | Where{$_.DisplayName -eq “User Name”}

    Remove-Mailbox -Database ”DB Name” -StoreMailboxIdentity $Temp.MailboxGuid

     

    References:

    Remove-Mailbox

    Can’t see Deleted Mailbox in Disconnected Mailbox under Recipient Configuration

  • Hi Amit,

    I am pretty much aware of “Do not permanently delete items until the database has been backed up” option and every day my full backups runs but even though two full backup has completed successfully the mailbox is still showing under disconnected mailbox.

    I know, I can delete them manually with Remove-Mailbox command but my question is "why this thing is happening is it a kind of bug or i am missing some thing or i am doing some thing wrong?"

    Thanks for your reply.
