1. First enable the users from Active Directory.
2. Re-Connect the Disconnected Mailboxes.

For more details about disconnected mailboxes, Kindly refer the below articles.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell┬« is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

On the EMC

Expand Recipient Configuration -> Disconnected Mailbox.

You should see the Mailbox here.
Right Click on the Mailbox and Connect it.

If you dont see the Mailbox in the Disconnected Mailbox then run the following command from Shell.
Get-MailboxDatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase

Please split the points properly, if you get 25% of the solution from 1 expert then they should get 25% of the points providing they were the 1st expert to post that solution.
