    Thumbs down Had a nightmare with Exchange!!!

    I've done something really stupid something only a t*****r would normally do!!!

    I've deleted the wrong user in exchange, well diasbled them now heres the problem...

    When i search for dis-connected mailboxs nothing shows? all the action settings in the server config are set up correctly (do not delete for 30 days, do not delete perm and all the rest)

    Does anyone have any ideas where the mailbox could be? and how to enable it?

    Thanks....

    try,

    Exchange system Manager > Tools(folder) > Mailbox Recovery Centre

    9/10 times they end up in there
