We use an Exchange 2010 solution. We placed a litigation hold on every mailbox in the company. During this period, one of the employees left. One of the email admins Removed the end user mailbox and LDAP account (this was not malicious, just normal procedure otherwise).
Now when legal wanted to search this, now separated, employee's mailbox, the Mailbox is not listable from within the Multi Mailbox Search. This is using Multi Mailbox Search -> New Search -> Mailboxes to Search -> Add -> Then searching for the employee name turn up no results. I assume the 'no results' is because the mailbox and account are no longer present.
1) Thoughts on how to retrieve/search the mailbox?
2) I would have thought that a Litigation Hold would prevent accidental Deletion. Was this an incorrect assumption?
