Exchange and disconnected mailboxes

Hi

I'm learning about Disconnected mailboxes in Exchange 2007 SP2.

Example -

User1 AD account has User1MBX mailbox.
$Service AD account has $ServiceMBX mailbox

I then disable the User1MBX mailbox and want to attach it to the $Service AD account. In order to do this, I have to disable the $ServiceMBX mailbox.

Now, if I was to search in Exchange Management Console for $ServiceMBX by Name/Alias/Last Name etc, would I expect to find it? That is, because $Service AD account is now mailbox attached (albeit to User1MBX), how do they all appear and where?

Secondly, I understand there is a command to refresh the view of disconnected mailbox (cleanup)- any details on that?

Thirdly, for a disconnected mailbox - I can't see properties such as size, item count, email address. I can only reconnect, any idea how to check properties using Powershell?

Fourthly, is it possible to export the contents of a disabled/disconnected mailbox to a PST or similar, or does it have to be connected up?

Finally, what's the difference between a DISABLED mailbox and a DELETED mailbox (both options when I right click a connected mailbox)
