I have a pure exchange 2010 environment. When 2010 performs a mailbox move the original source mailbox is left in the source database "disconnected". This sticks for whatever retention period you have set. I have a user that's complaining about missing emails after a mailbox move, so I'd like a peek into that original source mailbox to see if the missing messages are there. Unfortunately when I try to run Connect-Mailbox I get an error that the mailbox doesn't exist in the database. I'm think the DisconnectReason property which is set to SoftDelete is preventing the reconnect.
My question is does anyone know a way to force this through, preferable while reconnecting to an alternate user account?
Let me know. Thanks.
