I have a ghost in the machine.  I have a former user that is no longer has an Exchange 2003 Account, nor Active Directory account but when someone sends a meeting request to a group that she used to have Send on Behalf rights, the meeting organizer gets a message that her mailbox is full.

I have looked in AD Users & Computers, Exchange System Manager, no joy.  Can't find her to kill the orphaned record.

Any ideas?

:)) @ I love questions with headings like that.

Troubleshooting steps:
a) Call Father Lankester merrin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father_Lankester_Merrin)
b) Follow endital's suggestions above.
c) Download Adfind
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

Extract it to c:\adfind\

start > run > cmd
cd c:\adfind

adfind -sc email:email@domain.com > c:\user.txt

Open up the file and see where it is listed.

Thanks sunnyc7 and endital1097.  ADfind is handy but still can't find her.  I have looked for her old username and email address using various switches in ADfind.

Thanks for your help.
