I disable a mailbox account in exchange 2010 but I don't ever see the mailbox go into the disconnected mailbox view.  Why?  

Versions Exchange 2010
AD runs on windows 2003 - is this the issue?

Run Clean-MailboxDatabase against the database.

Is this on a timed schedule to run?

When you delete a mailbox it does not go into the delete mailboxes immediately, to speed it up you need to run that command.

This is the structure of the command:
clean-MailboxDatabase -Identity <DatabaseIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

normally you would just run it on the database without other parms.
ie. clean-MailboxDatabase groupdatabase

Replace groupdatabase with your database name.

The server will clean up on a schedule, you can override it by using that command.
