Before reconnecting the mailbox have you tried Run Cleanup agent.

so, does that mean that now you have two mailboxes for a user (one connected and one disconnected)

if that is the case then you might want to remove the exchange attributes from the user so that the new mailbox is disconnected (run cleanup agent once you remove the exchange attributes)
then you would see the new and the old mailbox as disconnected in ESM
after that connect the one that you want to connect to the user using the reconnect option
