I can send a test messsage to the same user,but this test message delete
mailbox on the server I saw the size.It looks like that after migration
of users and mailboxes it lost connection ..but I've seen it before config.
of Outlook on OWA,when I log on.

Is it problem with SID?

  If you got to exchange server system manger , can u c all the mailbox there without any red mark ? do u c proper size on all the mailbox .
 I am still not clear on what u mean >>I can send a test messsage to the same user,but this test message delete
mailbox on the server << do u mean the mail box is deleted when u send a test message & u cannot acess the mailbox store any more ??
 can you access OWA from a client ?? Do you see all the mails from OWA . If yes then your mailbox store is ok .
  I am still trying to figure out where your problem is . Do you have any error in the eventlogs of your exchange server ? if yes do post them ?

No errors on the server.It is strange..Form OWA I can see this mailbox.

I configure mailbox test@ls.net for example and send to that account test
message,I receive it. But BEFORE this I try to retrieve all messages in test
mailbox and I can not do it even I configure the client and have a plenty of
messages in the mailbox.

When I click Send/receive nothing hapenned.

Shall we try to completely reinstall servers?

Does migration wizard is the best way to move users and mailboxes
to another AD tree ...
