I deleted the SBS2003 user per the client and they now want it back. I went to recreate the user and  as I was reading a document on how to deal with this, I thought I missed something and thought I would start over. I deleted the user. But the Mailbox did not delete (no red X).

Under Exchange management If I right click on the mailbox I only get the option for "all tasks". Everything is grey.  There are no Exchange choices.

My goal is to recreate the user, delete the new mailbox in AD and then reconnect the old mailbox.

You need to wait for Exchange to pick up the account has gone. If you right click you should have a command to run the cleanup process, that will force things along a bit and shoudl get the red cross. Then you can create a regular user outside who is NOT mail enabled and attach the mailbox.

Thank you , that made it so I could delete the mailbox I could not get rid of.  I recreated the user and deleted that new mailbox.  Then I reconnected the original mailbox.

This was a domain user profile.  It there a way to reconnect this "recreated user" to her original domain profile?

Not reliably.
Domain profiles are locked to the user account.
The best you can do is copy the content around. Customisations will be lost though.
