    Was anything else happening in your domain at the time? What OS and domain/forest functionality level are you on?
    It was definitely the script that did it - it's not your fault though because there's absolutley no logical reason that the script should have done that.

    I ran the script on Server 2008 R2 running Exchange 2010 with a domain functional level of 2003 (currently got 1 2003 R2 DC and 1 2008 R2 DC).

    Hmmm, that's odd but thanks for saying it's not my fault.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a test environment that mimics what you've got so can't test - might set one up at home to satisfy my curiosity though. I'm guessing the AD recycle bin doesn't work at that functionality level?

    So you've got:

    1x 2008 R2 DC
    1x 2003 R2 DC
    1x Exchange 2010 server

    ?

    When I ran the script there were users that errored if they were disabled or already mail enabled but they definitely still exist here, must be something to do with the combination....

    No AD Recylce Bin (I need to replace the 2003 R2 DC and increase the functional level - in hindsight something that I should have done first).

    Server-wise, I have a lot more than that but they are the relevant ones, yes.

    Just had a thought... I also run OCS which might have a bearing on it as it all integrates.

    I closed my eyes and let it work on a new OU with users who had no mailbox. It worked out well

    I've just created 127 new users and run the script against their OU and it still seems fine in my environment.

    Now slightly paranoid but like Ric_ says, it's not "my fault" so I'm guessing there's a bug in Exchange's powershell somewhere?

    I have seen the code you have done

    so I was hoping that you could help me
    I need from the login script the user that is logging in
    to connect to AD find the upn prefix for the user that is logged in
    and map a drive to a folder that has the same name
    as the upn as the user (the user portion of the UPN does not match the samAccountName)

    as an example

    samAccountName = JohSmit35
    UPN = John Smith
    Folder Name = John Smith
    Drive Mapping = H:\users\John Smith

(How to Create a Mailbox for a New User: Exchange 2007 Help)
    ).
    To clarify the original problem the default alias has changed in Exchange 2010 to be forenamesurname instead of user principal name.
