How to enable disabled mailbox in Exchange 2010


In Exchange 2010 management console I disabled several mailboxes. How to undo that? They are not showing in the disconnected emailboxes as I thought they would? The mailboxes were migrated to other host and therefore needed to be disabled in this server, but now someone needs something from disabled mailbox... and I cannot find it anywhere??

You need to run the cleanup agent command on your mailbox server, in 2007 exchange we were able to do it via GUI but in 2010 you have to run the commands in the Exchange Shell.

Clean-MailboxDatabase \servername\SGName\Store
Cleans an individual database

Get-Mailboxdatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase
Cleans all the databases in the Organization

Thanks!!! Oh it comes to disconnected mailboxes only after clean up and there I can just enable it? Did I understood right?

That is correct, once you see it back in the disconnected mailboxes you can attach it to the user again
