Oh ok run the below cmdlet against the DB that the mailbox resides on:

clean-mailboxdatabase "database that has the mailbox"

Allow a bit of time for the the DB to update itself. This doesn't remove anything or change anything on the DB. This just forces a refresh of the DB with updates AD properties on the mailbox. It could take about 30 minutes to an hour to show update. It should re-enable itself

just remember that 1024 MB is equal to 1GB

Run the following to see the mailbox size

Get-MailboxStatistics -Identity "username" | ft displayname, totalitemsize

This will show you the current size of the mailbox.
