Greetings!!!

I have a situation that I removed one accepted domain from the exchange server 2007.  It also removed all the relevant users as well. One of the user didnt have his complete backup.  The mailbox is still in the disconnected mailbox section.  The same is user is not there.  

Is it possible to reconnect the same mailbox to another dummy user.  I need to restore sent items for this particular user.
Also now this domain is hosted externally with one the mail hosting provider.

Please let me know if it would affect any thing if I reconnect to a dummy user.

Thanks in Advance

Create a  new dummy user in ADUC and reconnect the disconnected mailbox to the newly created dummy user.
configure outlook and export mails to PST.

After exporting delete the newly created user.

Please let me know if you face any issue
