  • In Exchange 2007, If you want to recover deleted mailboxes, By default deleted email items is retained for 14 days and deleted mailboxes for 30 days and settings are set on database level. Refer below articles for further details.

  • Hello,

    If the mailbox is deleted less retention period (30 days), the deleted mailbox is in disconnected mailbox, you can restore the deleted mailbox via EMC/EMS.

    If you can't find the deleted mailbox in disconnected mailbox, you can run the clean-mailboxdatabase cmdlet to update the status of those mailboxes in the Exchange store, and then check the disconnected mailbox list again.

    You can also run the following cmdlet to find the disconnected mailbox.

    Get-MailboxStatistics -Server <server> | where { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | select DisplayName,DisconnectDate

    And then using Connect-Mailbox cmdlet to restore the mailbox.

    If the mailbox is deleted more than 30 days, I'm afraid you must restore entire database and then restore the deleted mailbox.

    Here is an article for your reference.

    1. When was the mailbox deleted?
    2. How often do you backup your database?

    Search, Recover, & Extract Mailboxes, Folders, & Email Items from Offline Exchange Mailbox and Public Folder EDB's and Live Exchange Servers or Import/Migrate direct from Offline EDB to Any Production Exchange Server, even cross version i.e. 2003 --> 2007 --> 2010 --> 2013 with Lucid8's DigiScope
