Hello Experts,

Exchange 2010 (single server with all roles) public folder database became curupted. No problem, just create another and edb to pst the old items that could be recovered. All that went fairly well...till this issue:

One of the old mail enabled public folders email address is still lingering in the database somewhere as when I try to add one with the same name it will not allow me to use the old email address. Get an error that it already exists.

No record can be found via the Console, so it must be a Shell command to locate and delete

Anyone help with the commands to do this

Thanks

Got it, so do I just delete the item there and then I will be able to re-add it with the old address?

Yes. but you will have to wait for the Active Directory replication to complete and perform its clean up job.
