Exchange user account database issue

Exchange 2007

I have a user that under Recipient > Mailbox Configuration is showing the 'Server' abc-123. Everyone else is abc123 the correct server.

If I open the properties of this user I get The properties on 'testuser' have invalid data if you click OK, default values...

I'm unable to delete the mailbox because of the error about having to have a database.

So I need to get this user on a database and the correct server name. I can't delete this account so is there a work around for this without deleting the account?

The user's attributes seem to be corrupt.  You can try to rename the user and do the rest, but most likely you will need to re-create the user.

That's what I didn't want to do. Unfortunately the account has been used for years for everything so it is inextricably tied in with too many things.

Look for invalid characters or whitespace (e.g: a blank space) in the users Alias, SAMAccountName and UserPrincipleName (UPN) attributes. That will cause this error within Exchange.
