I need ro reconnect a disconnected mailbox Exchange 2007

we disconnected a users mailbox a few weeks ago and now it needs to be reconnected. I do not see it in disconnected mailboxes but could swear it was there earlier. I know about the cleanup commands but that does not seem to bring it back. If I do a get-mailbx username I can see the mailbox still exists. Does that mean the mailbox is still out there and recoverable? I do not think it has been manually removed, I know I did not do it, but not sure if anyone else would have. Is there a shell command to reconnect the mailbox? Is there a way to verify what database it is in or should be in? I think I am going to have to resolve this in the shell. All advice welcome

I have seen that command, but I do not seem to know what the database is. Since I can "get-mailbox" is there a way to see which database the mailbox is in?

Hello,

How many days are you keeping deleted mailboxes for? The default is 30 days. You said it has been "a few weeks". Is it possible you have exceeded this time limit?
