Hi all

How do I fix the Legacy mailbox type in exchange 2013, our exchange 2003 server broken down a month ago, and recently we had installed exchange 2013, and found out that all the user mailbox type are legacy, how do I make the legacy mailbox type back to normal ? I have tried to new a mailbox and choose exist user, I was able to recovered some of the mail account, but still was not able to find it, any ways that I can fix this problem , thx

You can use the following  command from the Exchange Management Shelll to test one and see if it works

Set-Mailbox alias -ApplyMandatoryProperties

Open in new window


To change all of them use the following command from Exchange Management Shell

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited  -Filter { RecipientTypeDetails -eq “LegacyMailbox” } | Set-Mailbox -ApplyMandatoryProperties

Open in new window

You cannot remove the mailbox without removing the domain account. You can try disabling the mailbox but I am not sure how that will help you.

Have the mailboxes been moved to an Exchange 2013 Server?
