Windows Server 2008 DC, Exchange 2003

I accidentally deleted a user account.

Restored using ADRestore tool, but couldnt get mailbox to reconnect - error:

"An object (User or Other Object) with the following name cannot be found: "User". Check the selected objects types and locations for accuracy and ensure that you have typed name correctly, or remove this object from the selection."

So I redeleted the account and created a new one from scratch, but same error. I even created an account with a completely different name but I cant connect the mailbox to that either!

I am logged on as the user now, everything else works fine, just need to get Exchange to recognise the newly created account.

Hi, Go to Exchange System Manager and drill down to Admin Groups / First Admin Group / Servers / ServerName / First StorageGroup (or the Storage Group where the mailbox was) / Mailbox Store /  Mailboxes. The mailbox for a deleted user will be disconnected, with a RedCircle and a cross. Depending on the settings on your mailbox store the mailbox will not be deleted immediately so you have the opportunity to re connect it. You can right click a disconnected mailbox and select Reconnect then browse to the restored user.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
