Hi All
I noticed when I delete a user account in Active Directory 2008 it also deletes their Exchange 2010 Mailbox. It does not prompt you that it is doing this. Is there any way to turn this feature off.

Thanks

After deleting the user it will keep mailbox till retention is over same as Exchange 2003. To see the disconnected mailbox you first need to connect to the server (in GUI) where users mailbox was present. OR if you know the database or server where user was then just run...

Get-mailboxstatistics -database <db name> | where {$_.disconnectdate -ne $null}

OR to run on all MBx servers.

Get-mailboxserver | Get-mailboxstatistics | Where {$_.disconnectdate -ne $null}

Also if a mailbox user has not logged on to his mailbox atleast once or at least one email is not sent to the mailbox then mailbox object wont appear in disconnected mailbox.

Infact when u create a new mailbox in exchange 2007/2010 then the  mailbox object wont be created in exchange mailbox store until u either logged on to that mailbox or send an email to that new mailbox.

And meeting these all conditions if u still dont see your mailbox in disconnectd mailbox list then run this command

Clean-MailboxDatabase "MailboxDatabase"

and hopefully that mailbox will appear in disconnected mailbox list.
