Last Error: The mailbox recipient does not have a mailbox database

Hi i have an issue,
i think it all started last week friday when one off my helpdesk managers accidently deleted one of my OU in Ad witch had all my site user accounts listed(not impressed). I did do a restore and it all is resolved, but now i have noticed that on my exhange server on the qeue viewer i have alot of mail sitting in the unreacheable domain.
If you double click on the certain mails the error you get is the following "Last Error: The mailbox recipient does not have a mailbox database"

also all the mails in the queue the recipients were the users affected in the deletion..
the queue shows ready but mails arent moving out, how can i resolve this as i think it has to do with the aacounts being deleted

hope you can help

If the AD User objects were deleted, this can also mark the selected mailboxes for deletion. Using the Exchange System Manager, it might be an idea look at the storage group where one of these mailboxes is stored and reconnect it if required.
I hope this helps

Hi Michaelian
ok stupid question exchange system manager is that the management console and would i reconnect the storage group or just the affected users, i am running exchange 2007 jut incase

i am still learning exchange :)

Other thing is i do however see there mailboxes though
Michael Ian ClaridgeActing Service Delivery ManagerCommented:
Yes :-) it should contain the first administrative group with all your deployed exchange servers, information stores, mailstores etc

Is there a red flag by any of the mailboxes? And yes you can bring the storage group online via the console too.

Open the properties page for the restored OU and go to the Security tab. Click Advanced and make sure "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent" is checked.
