I rebuilt an exchange server (only one in our forest) and a few of the mailboxes reconnected themselves.... maybe 10 or so are working. The other 290 of them are haveing trouble. I manually reconnected some of them and attached it to the appropriate AD user account... and then it says "Successful..." but THEN when I hit OK I get an error that says:
-------------------
The object has not been replicated to the destination server yet. Wait for replication to complete and try again.

Operation: Updating mailbox resources on server 'MAIL'...
ID no: c1031731
Exchange System Manager

--------------------

I first got this message yesterday. I got it all last night and now again this morning. This is the only exchange server and it's an emergency. I appreciate any help.

I ran a mailbox cleanup and now I get a warning in the Application log (Event viewer) for EVERY user saying: The user account for 'Barrera, Dominga' does not exist in the directory or is not enabled for Exchange mail. This mailbox will be removed from mailbox store 'First Storage Group/Mailbox Store (MAIL)' in 29 days

Remove the old exchange attributes, turn on advanced features under Active Directory Users and Computers and
use the Exchange task "Remove exchange attributes" to ensure the accounts are purged of any "bogus" information.

Use the utility MBconn that is on your Exchange 2000 CD to reconnect your users to their mailboxes.

For more information, see the Mailbox Reconnect Help file (Mbconn.chm) located in the <CD Drive>\ExchSrvr\Server\Support\Utils\i386 folder
