A user was deleted from Exchange 2016 EAC. That deleted the user from AD. Recycle Bin was enabled after the deletion. Going into DSAC then deleted objects shows nothing (account is not there). A global search does not return the user account. Using ldp.exe then connecting and binding to a DC (only 2 in this environment) shows nothing when drilling down to deleted objects (no child objects).

Why would the deleted account not show up anywhere? Where else can we look?

Happy Monday
