We have a SBS 2008 server, recently I removed a user called Accounts, we now need to recreate this user and their email account (previous mails etc aren't required).  If I go through the SBS console to create the user, it tells me the user already exists.  If I create the user in in Actve directiory the user doesn't appear in the SBS Console view and the mailbox is not available.  How do I create the user again and get a mail box.
