Exchange 2010, disabling accounts, and MAPI


What happens to an account when it is disabled in the EMC, and if you know, what attributes does the account get when the account is disabled?

I have an app that makes mapi calls to get inside of an account. We use the Outlook API's to do this. We can open an account in Outlook just fine but sometimes I cannot make mapi calls to it with my program. If I disable and then reinable the Exchange 2010 account then the MAPI calls work.

So, I would like to understand what happens to the account when it is disabled and then enabled, and then maybe I can figure out what to do with my MAPI program.


PS: Are there any hotfixes or service packs that mention anything about problems with accounts and access?
