Is there a way to completely cut off access to an Exchange 2010 email account right away?
Posted on 2013-09-26
I was wondering if there is a way to cut off access to an Exchange 2010 email account right away in case an employee is let go? I noticed that even if I change the password the account and disable the access in AD (login hours to not allowed), but the employee is still connected using Outlook or webmail, that their connection stays up and the ex-employee is still able to send and receive emails, delete contacts, emails, etc. I read some articles that say that if you move it to another DB, access will be cut off (thus a combination of that plus disabling the login and changing the password would work). However, the access is not cut off until the end of the mailbox move and if the person has a big email box, it could mean that he or she can potentially remain logged on for hours. Please let me know if there is a solution as I think this is a major malfunction in Exchange...
