    "Disconnected Mailbox" Exchange 2007

    Hi All,

    I have recently noticed that when I go on Disconnected Mailbox on our EMC it says "There are no items to show in this view". I have tried
    • Connecting to Server
    • Un-mounting then mounting the Disconnected Mailbox database in the Database Recovery Management tool
    • Running the clean-mailbox database "Database". this comes up with the message "The mailbox database you specified is a recovery mailbox database, you cannot apply this task to it."

    I've been googling this for a day and have got no where. Has anyone ran into this problem before and if so please tell me you found a way to resolve it.

    Cheers

    Dan

    I'm assuming that you know for a fact that you actually HAVE some disconnected mailboxes?

    Ok - how were they disconnected originally? Accounts removed from AD? There is a time limit, after which a disconnected mailbox will be removed - have you perhaps gone past this?

    We disable the email account then delete the AD account. We do on occasions have to disable student email accounts due to mis-use and I know the last one wasn't more than 30days ago.

    You probably have a valid reason but why not just remove the E-mail account which in turn will remove the AD object......

    We most the time don't want to remove the AD object we just want to disconnect the email account for a short period.

    Hmm.. ok. I'll have a dig around, but I suspect without being able to reproduce the problem I won't get too far..
