  • 1. Check the event logs on your AD server.2

    2. Maybe you should post in the directory forum as it seems to be more AD related than Exch. - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverDS/threads

  • First you will have to reconnect the mailbox and than delete it.

  • Right click the user in AD, security tab, advanced button. Is inheritance checked? If not check it. Go back into the security tab is administrators or domain admins there with full rights? Are there any denies?
