Thanks for your prompt reply.

But you have to disabled it in Active Directory, correct, as if you disable in Exchange management, doesn't it dis associate the mailbox? and disappear from the GAL and etc.
James HIT DirectorCommented:
Yes, you need to disable in ADUC, not in EMC.
You can choose to hide the account from the GAL, but that is a personal preference and how you and your company deal with disabled accounts/users.
