I have a user account that was disabled yesterday as they were terminated.  The supervisor wants to have any e-mail being sent to that person to be re-directed to the supervisor.  She also wants any e-mail that was sent to the terminated employee since 7/2 to be forwarded to the supervisor.

What is the easiest way to do this?  I've had problems re-enabling e-mail after the user account has already been disabled.

TO get the PST out from the mailbox you need to connect his mail box to some user and use exmerge. Also to get the Local PST he must have Outlook Logeed in somewhere so that you can open the same in any other mailbox.

For further understanding.

In future, the best thing to do is NOT disable the account. If you change the password then it will get locked out very quickly if anything is left open and stop access to resources.

Email that was sent to the user since a certain date will have to be accessed through the mailbox. You cannot resend the email once it has been delivered.

New email is just a matter of putting a forward on the account through Delivery Options.

Both of these comments show what to do in the future, i need a solution for the problem.  Perhaps Npatang can explain how to reconnect the mailbox so I at least have access to the e-mails of the ex-employee.  I can't even get into his mails right now so I am unable to create the PSTs

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You Still have his mailbox. create a test account without mailbox and then connect this user account to the problamatic mailbox. try logging in the outlook for this user and get the PST out from there.

If the account has been disabled, and that is all, then enabling it again should give you access to the mailbox once Exchange catches up with the disabled account being re-enabled.
If you have DELETED the account or removed the Exchange attributes then more work is required.
You need to state exactly what you did. Disabling an account alone should not cause a mailbox to become disconnected.

The account has only been disabled.  I re-enabled it and changed the password.  I logon to a PC with it successfully, but when I go to configure Outlook with the Exchange account, in exchange server settings when I click connect for the username, it brings up the Connect to mailserver authentication window, where I put in the DOMAIN\username and password, but just keeps re-appearing, as if the password is not being recognized.

Npatang - I created a new account called mbrestore with NO mailbox.  How do I attach the ex-employees email to this new account?
