Re-connect Deleted Mailbox

I have Exchg 2K7 and deleted an AD user acct today, which of course deletes the Exchg mailbox as well. Turns out now the end user is not resigning today, but a different day (fickle end user). :)

Simple question (I hope) -> the mailbox doesn't show in either the mailbox or disconnected mailbox sections under Recipient Config in Exchg Mgmt Console. Is there a way to get the disconnected mailbox to show up quickly or is this a set time within Exchg not configurable? Will I have to wait until tomorrow to be able to re-connect the disconnected mailbox to the new AD user acct I just recreated?

Thx!

To be a bit more clear/detailed:
1.the "clean-mailboxdatabase" is a parameter in the shell already correct?
2. "your-database" is what?...the database the end user was/is a part of? (I have 4 storage groups/databases).

Thanks for the quick response!
