Hello Team,

But the user mailbox which is seen in Office365, not gone. It still there. i waited for replication to happen. But 2 days pass, Still mailbox not disabled from Office365

when you say "disable" what do you mean?  you want to keep the mailbox but disallow sign on and use? or you want to remove the account from exchange?  I'm not sure which you mean.

Disable means.. i dont want AD account will be deleted.
I want his office365 mailbox get disabled
When i run the command suggested by alan in both article. Only disable the remote user mailbox from exchange.. ..that actual mailbox not deleted from office365. It still there

Hope you understand my issue this time

Once i disable the remote user mailbox from exchange.. then the same need to be replicated to office365..so that mailbox get disabled.
Trenton KnewOwner / Computer WhispererCommented:
so, then... why does my solution not work?  Outside of semantics, if the user cannot access their mailbox, because all the access is turned off, is that not the same as disabling the account?

You can disable the sign in all together by going to portal.office.com, sign in, Users, Active Users, find user and double click, settings, Set sign-in status blocked
