Hi Experts,
We use Exchange 2003. I just accidentally removed a user's Exchange attributes in AD (2003). Is there any way to restore his mailbox?

The mailbox should still exist on exchange server.  You need open exchange console and find which store the mailbox is on.  The mailbox will show its a disconnected state.  All u need to do is reconnect it.

The mailbox does still exist on Exchange server but on EMS, while right-click the mailbox, "Reconnect" and "Purge" are all dim out. Any idea?

But I think that link is for Ex2010. You know what, we are still with Exchange 2003. Any idea?

Exactly correct, I need to 'Run Cleanup Agent' under Mailboxes folder. Thank you so much.
