when i delete a user from exchange 2010, the user gets moved to the DISCONNECTED MAILBOX. How can i delete the user? how can i change it so that when i delete a user, it permanently deletes it without moving to the disconnected mailbox.

You can't just make it bypass the Disconnected Mailbox. This is a safety valve of sorts, but you can delete the Disconnected Mailboxes themselves.: http://www.itbigbang.com/how-to-remove-disconnected-mailboxes-in-exchange-server-2010/

Apparently you have to disabled mailboxes are retained in the mailbox database until the deleted mailbox retention period expires or until the mailbox is permanently deleted.

Soft-deleted mailboxes are retained in the source database until either the deleted mailbox retention period expires or until the usage of Remove-StoreMailbox  is used to purge the mailbox.

Disable mailbox will disconnect the mailbox from AD account and will keep it under disconnected mailbox section as per your mailbox retention period. If you don't want to keep it for long time, you can reduce the period.

You can say it is like a recycle bin for mailbox. In case someone deleted by mistake, still mailbox remains under disconnected state and can be connected to AD account again.

Take a situation, where your AD admin by mistake removed an AD account. In that case mailbox also gone. So Exchange moves it to disconnected mailbox section. So you have time to recover it back, in case you need it. Else you need to go by a whole restore process.

Another situation is that there are times that the Exchange system will spontaneously disconnect a mailbox, either because of and AD issue or dirty shutdown, etc. You wouldn't want the mailbox to be unrecoverable at that point. Your rally better off just letting it sit as it was designed to do. Adjusting the time period before cleanup might help you, but it's really designed pretty well for use out of the box.

A bit more precisely:
In order to configure the mailbox retention setting from the Exchange Management Console in Exchange 2010, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox and then select the database in the Database Management tab. Select its Properties and configure the “Keep deleted mailboxes for (days)” setting on the Limits tab:

currently i have 7 for "Keep deleted items for (days)". if i switch to 2, i still have to wait the 7 days for whatever is currently in the disconnected mailboxes ?

what is the difference between "keep deleted items" and "keep deleted mailboxes". if the value is set to 0, what happens then?

thanks

Keep deleted items for (days)  Use this box to set the number of days that deleted items are retained in a mailbox. You can enter a value from 0 through 24,855 days.

Keep deleted mailboxes for (days)  Use this box to set the number of days that deleted mailboxes are retained. You can enter a value from 0 through 24,855 days.

Basically one deals with mailbox, the other deals with email itself.
