How do you move an existing Exchange 2010 mailbox to a new user?

I have a user with a corrupt profile.  I'm going to create a new profile and want the new profile to have the existing mailbox.
I Googled it but couldn't find the answer.

How do I do this?  Step by step, please

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What you would do is disable the mailbox, this will put it into the disconnected mailbox state.  Reconnect it and choose the new user account.

1) Open up EMC > Recipient Configuration > Mailbox

2) Right-click the mailbox and select Disable

3) Mailbox will now be moved to Disconnected Mailbox

4) Click on Disconnected Mailbox > right-click the mailbox you disabled > choose connect

5) User Mailbox > Existing user > Choose the new user account you created

I know this is a different question, but is it possible to give the new users account the same name as the one that is damaged?  Or do I have to delete the damaged one first?

You have to delete the damaged one first if you want that account to use the same username.

Final question, then I award points.  I appreciate the additional help.  I've disabled the mailbox.  Is it ok to delete the damaged profile, then create the new one?
Nick RhodeIT DirectorCommented:
Yes, the mailbox will stay disconnected for a certain period of time before being purged.
