Exchange 2000: User account was deleted or is missing. How do I reconnect the mailbox to a new user (or same user)?

The original username was kuser. The user account is gone in AD Users and Computers. Exchange System Manager has the mailbox listed as Ken User and after running the cleanup tool the mailbox is not marked for deletion. I created a new user account named kenuser but I cannot connect to the Ken User mailbox. Any suggestions?

Thanks for any help!

You need to find that account.  It looks like AD thinks it is still there.  That makes more sense when considering you don't know where it went.

Have you tried a search on the alias and/or username in AD Users and Computers? If not there, take a look in ADSIEdit for the object.  You can delete it there if necessary.
