We have a user account with an associated mailbox. The user account is deleted, but we are trying to recover the mailbox that was associated with the user account. We want the previous information that was in the box and any future emails that come to that account. How should we proceed?

    I would check the exchange store and see if the mailbox still exists.  If it does attach it to another AD account.  

    As far as getting all future emails I would just create an alias in exchange for that address on another user's email box.  Then all future email sent to that email address will go to the mailbox you have associated it with.
