How to recreate user account in AD to retain all permissions

Hello

I need to recreate AD account as I'm unable to remove "ghost delegate" issue with that account.
Any tips how to retain all the permissions or is it a pretty much a manual process?
Also once i delete the AD account I will be able to associate his existing Exchanage mailbox?

Thank you

If you only delete the AD account and not the Mailbox, yes--You can add the mailbox to another AD user.  What permissions are you referring to?  File Permissions?  Then yes, it's a manual process unless you created AD groups to reflect the necessary file permissions.

yes, share permissions and security groups membership.
I will just need to take notes what the user has permissions to and is member of and I should be good?

Are you sure that recreating AD account will solve your ghost delegate issue?
I think this kind of settings kept in mailbox rather than in AD.

But before restore the user account did you tried to add another delegate for the account that is issuing the "ghost delegate" error and then remove the newly added delegate to see if the error is still there?...

I don't mind reassigning permissions manually but if the "ghost delegate" is in the mailbox then I amy still have the same issue if I relink the old mailbox to new AD account?

Well, I don't exactly if you will have same issue, but in addition you could try a mailbox restore to have the exact situation before you have this problem.

For mailbox recovery you could use this article: How to recover or to restore a single mailbox in Exchange Server 2003 or another one to reconnect the mailbox to a new user object: How to Recover a Deleted Mailbox in Exchange.
