I have a user on the helpdesk whos account is botched. I want to blow it away in AD but retain his mailbox, re-create his account and just reconnect his mailbox. However when I try to do this, AD confirms the deletion and "mark each selected exchange mailbox for deletion" is ticked but I cant untick it. I.E it is set as default somewhere.
Im in the Domain Admins group and it wont let me untick it either. How can I change this? Does this option mean that the mailbox will be deleted straight away? Can you advise the best pratice for deleting an account in AD without deleting a mailbox and just recreating the account and readding the mailbox later?
Just as backround we have just migrated to AD and Exhange 2003.
