MS Exchange 2007- User's mailbox and store.exe

Hello everyone

I have an Xchange 2007 SP2 which, from time to time, gives us some grief
Here is my question

After deleting a user’s mailbox I find that he still shows up in the Exchange User Monitor. Why does this happen? Does Store.exe retain his information for a period of time? If so, is there a way to immediately clear his mailbox?

Thank you for your attention

Depending on your retention configuration, the users mailbox may still be sitting out there in a disconnected state.  You should be able to see information about where the connections are coming from, as the user account may not be connecting to the mailbox you removed.
