Hello Experts,
One of my employees right click on a mailbox in Exchange Management Consol and clicked remove.
Now, Under Receipient Configurations -> Mailboxes. The mailbox is gone, I checked under Disconnected Mailbox and the mailbox is not there as well.
Our database is configured to keep the mailbox for 14 days.
How do I recover this mailbox? or how can I find it?
Thank you
Roy

Tape backup.  The retention period is for when you remove the active directory account and it leaves a detached mailbox.

before you do....

from an Exchange Powershell, run 'Clean-MailboxDatabase "server\database name"' and then check your disconnected mailboxes.
