Deleted Mailbox Retention Period

We have been trying to work out how we can completely remove the mailbox retention period so that mailboxes in 'disconnected' state stay there permanently.

Does anyone know if this is possible or if there is another way to disable a mailbox so that it gets no incoming mail?

We have found how to change this retention but had no luck with completely disabling this policy so far.

This is in a Exchange 2010 environment running on a Server 2008 R2 box.

I you just want to have the mailboxes for historical purposes and don't need to send or receive email to the mailbox. Don't disable the mailbox. Add domian.local in the accepted domains. Remove all the email addresses and add a local email address like john@domain.local
Also hide the user account from the Gal
