A user has left the company.  The user's account was disabled and the password changed.  The user has still been receiving and responding to emails after 3 days.  How is this possible?  How can it be fixed?

The company needs to access the mailbox.  If the user is disabled, how is activesync still operational for the user regardless of it being enabled or disabled?  At this point we have removed the user completely and reattached the disconnected mailbox to a dummy user account.  We have assigned full access permission to the dummy user account to all remaining users that require access to the contents.

It seems changes made didn't replicated. Also disable ID won't disable mailbox access.

It seems odd that changing a user's password AND disabling the user account in AD does not close off activesync.  Thanks for the assistance.
