Right-Click on the Mailbox in the Exchange Management Console> Recipient Config> Mailbox and choose Disable.  This will remove the mailbox from the user account.

Then in the Disconnected Mailbox folder (underneath Mailboxes), you should see the disconnected mailbox.

Right-click the disconnected mailbox and then attach it to the user you want to attach it to.

If you can't see the mailbox after disabling it, run the following:

clean-mailboxdatabase "Database_Name"

Don't worry - I'm in the office (for a change), so sitting on top of my mailbox ;)

The easiest way is to run the following commands from Power shell.

Disconnect

e.g. : Disable-Mailbox user_ID@contoso.com

Reconnect

e.g. : [PS] C:\>Connect-Mailbox -Identity "Firstname Lastname" -Database Databasename -User firstname.Lastname
