Immediate deletion of user's mailbox
Posted on 2006-07-03
My question is twofold. Am running Server 2003 and Exchange 2003. I use GFI Mail Archiver and have exceeded my license limit for mail enabled users. My 15 day grace period has begun. I have two or three users that don't need or use email, so I want to delete or disable their mailboxes.
My understanding is that once I delete the mailbox it will still be enabled for 30 days. Is there anyway I can shorten that period so it will be disabled/deleted before my 15 day grace period ends? Also, will deleting a user's mailbox have any adverse affects on their account aside from their ability to use any mail functions?
