linking exchange mailbox to user

Hi,

I accidentally deleted myself from my AD when fooling around a bit...

Now, Exchange 2003 still has my mailbox, how do I link it to my new username? Because when I remade myself, exchange made a new mailbox with the same name...=\ I deleted that, so, only the old one is left...

No links please...just an easy way to get my mailbox working under the new username again :) (which is the same as the old one).

In Exchange System Manager, right-click the mailbox and select Reconnect.

Pick the domain account from the list.

ok, so there are now 2 mailboxes, both unlinked.

let's name them

jos1 = original, got all the mail etc in it.
jos2 = made by AD wizard when I remade my account. Deleting it apparently just unlinked it, and I cannot remove it. As long as it doesn't bother me I don't care though.

ok, I noticed the recovery center. Added my mailbox there, and it seems to have relinked itself as it was supposed to...but now outlook won't let me log in with the supplied credentials...(of the new account)

If Reconnect is greyed out then you don't have proper permissions to Exchange.

ok, solved the prob. Ran the cleanup agent, which marked the mailboxes, then I could reconnect. But had to use the recovery center first, which was kinda confusing since MS said I had to make a special mailbox for it etc etc.

No, I had permissions ;)

You didn't help at all lol, but it's good someone responded anyways, you haven't earned the full 500, but I can't do much else, so I'll give it anyways :P

Thanks for trying though, I do appreciate that!
