I have a user account which was deleted within Active Directory....that's creepy enough but the good news is her mailbox still exists within ESM.  I need to recreate the user account and connect it to the existing mailbox.  Can this be done?

Assuming Server 2003, and Exchange 2003, Create an account without creating a Mailbox.

Then go into Exchange Manager, and connect the Mailbox to the Account.

Yes Server 2003 with Exchange 2003 is being used.
Within ESM, how do I connect the mailbox to the account?

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

Go into the Mailbox container.  If the Mailbox does not have a red icon, Right Click the Mailbox Folder and "Run Cleanup".

Once you have the red icon on the Mailbox, Right Click and Reconnect.

Rick, that worked - thanks.

I am still unable to login to the users mailbox via OWA - do you know if there is replication time involved or did I miss something?

Not sure why that would happen, do you have more than 1 DC?  If so go to Sites manually replicate.
