Deleted SBS2008 Profile/Mailbox - RECOVERY

I accidentally deleted a SBS 2008 AD User, which also deleted the mailbox. I recreated the user and was able to associate the mailbox with the user, but now I can't login to the mailbox. I get this error on OWA:

Outlook Web Access could not find a mailbox for S-1-5-21-281969112-2114657250-1061784633-5189. If the problem continues, contact technical support for your organization and tell them the following: The mailbox may be stored on a Microsoft Exchange 2000 or Microsoft Exchange 2003 server, or the Active Directory user account was created recently and has not yet replicated to the Active Directory site where this Client Access server is hosted.

I need to reassociate the mailbox with the AD login.

Also, the client computer created a new profile when logging into the new AD account (same credentials) and I see "Account Unknown" profiles on the Win 7 machine. Is there any way to recover the profile?

Also - I used this command to connect the mailbox to the re-created AD user:

connect-Mailbox -Identity 'Mailbox Name'
-Database 'Mailbox Database'
-User 'username'

You can restore a mailbox from BU:
https://blogs.technet.com/b/jribeiro/archive/2011/01/05/how-to-restore-an-individual-exchange-2010-mailbox-with-windows-server-backup.aspx

but

Your old profile should still be on the workstation.(If system is STD)  You'll need to use a third party tool to access OST and make it into pst. Once you've done that:
Mak a new user in SBS console, add user to workstation, import data and pst, rename user in SBS console. Add old mailbox address touser in  EMC and make it the primary.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

Just because you connected the mailbox to the user account doesn't mean that it got the right permissions.  Make sure that the new user you created is the owner of the mailbox.
