Open the ESM>Browse to the server>Storage Group>Mailbox Database>Mailbox

Right hand side you will find the orphaned mailboxes. Again it depends how long you are retaining them in your env.

Hi Bill Bondo

I am under First Stoage Group > Mailbox Store > Mailboxes

There are no mailboxes with a red ex displayed on the right , does that mean none of my mailboxes are orphaned?
