Deleted mailboxes will not appear in EMC

if you accidently delete user mailbox from EMC or got confused about Disable & Remote and clicked on remove for particular user and now needing to get the mailbox yet able to see it under disconnected mailbox , recipient configuration?

** Deleted mailbox will be visible after online maintenance runs and completes** so if you do not want to wait and wish to re-connect the disconnected mailbox to another AD user object here is what you need to do run Clean-MailboxDatabase  CMDLET.

Get-Mailboxdatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase

This will clean  all DBs in given  SMTP organization.

My mail server name is mail2 , I would use fallowing CMDLET, substitute mail2 to your own mail server name.

Get-Mailboxdatabase | Where{ $_.Server –eq “mail2”}| clean-MailboxDatabase
