Exchange 2007 - Mailbox Log? Enabled / Disabled Status

Is there a log somewhere that would show a mailbox's status over a period of time? I need to prove that a mailbox is and has been disabled for a period of time but I don't know if Exchange stores that information.

Audit logging would probably show the action of an account being disabled (you cannot disable a mailbox). However that would require audit logging to be enabled and the logs to cover the period you are after. It is not enabled by default and cannot be retrospectively enabled.

Thanks Simon.

Maybe I'm not using the correct terminology but the mailboxes I'm talking about are resource mailboxes (Rooms, Equipment, etc.) and those mailboxes are disabled by default. I need to show that that's always been the case, if possible. I don't think I have audit logging on but I could be wrong.

I would say it will be almost impossible to show that they have always been disabled.
Trying to prove a negative is very difficult.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can gather mailbox enable/disabled information by using Exchange management shell.
Try this cmdlet : get-mailboxStatistics
In addition, you can also have a look at http://www.exchangereports.net/ which looks a proficient option to check status of enable/disabled mailbox.

Get-MailboxStatistics isn't going to show the historical information - it will show the current state of the mailbox, but not whether it has always been disabled.

Thanks. I thought that'd be the case but wanted to do my due diligence.
