It seems that my mailbox goes into a quarantined state every few days. I manage to bring it back online but would like to figure out the culprit. What can I run against the mailbox to check and repair the issue? I would like to not to take the whole store offline while doing this.

Hello,

You want to run New-MailboxRepairRequest.

To elaborate further, the reason the mailbox is being quarantined is because a corrupted mailbox has the potential to damage the information store. This is where the above New-MailboxRepairRequest cmdlets come in as in previous versions of Exchange you would have to dismount the entire store and use tools such as isinteg to repair the corruption.

To repair the quarantined mailbox, run the below command in Exchange Management Shell:
New-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox <mailbox alias> -CorruptionType ProvisionedFolder,SearchFolder,AggregateCounts,Folderview

Open in new window

You can use the -DetectOnly switch to just give a report of any corruption detected - this switch will not repair the mailbox.

This article gives a great outline as to how the mailbox quarantine process works in Exchange 2013: http://thoughtsofanidlemind.com/2014/01/27/mailbox-quarantining-in-exchange-2010-and-exchange-2013/

What is it that you need help with? You can check the status of the repair by running the command Get-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox "User Name" | fl

If you'd like to know what kind of output this command will give you then you can have a read here for more information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn306060%28v=exchg.150%29.aspx#DetailedDescription
