Reconnect a Disabled mailbox that was never logged into

I have a mailbox that was only ever used to "send out as" by staff.

Nobody had ever logged into the mailbox directly. The mailbox was disabled mistakenly just today, but is not visable in the Disconnected Mailboxes window.

Any help how to get it back and reconnect it?

If you are using Exchange 2007 or 2010 you may need to follow the advice in this column to get the disabled mailbox to show up in the Disconnected mailbox window.

Basically you run a Shell command and the mailbox will magically appear.

It does take a couple days to show up or you can do get-mailboxdatabase | clean-mailboxdatabase.
