Deleting and restoring Microsoft Exchange mailboxes

NOTE: As long as an account definition for an employee is valid, the employee retains the mailbox that was created by it. If the account definition assignment is removed, the mailbox created through this account definition, is deleted.

To delete a mailbox

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Mailboxes category.

  2. Select a mailbox in the result list.

  3. Click in the result list.

  4. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

To restore a mailbox

  1. In the Manager, select the Active Directory > Mailboxes category.

  2. Select a mailbox in the result list.

  3. Click in the result list.

When you delete a mailbox, the Do not display in address lists option is enabled and the mailbox is no longer shown in address books. The settings Use default database values, Max. send size [KB], Max. receiving size [KB], Prohibit transfer above [KB], and Prohibit send at [KB] are reset, so that no email messages can be sent or received with this mailbox.

Configuring deferred deletion

By default, mailboxes are finally deleted from the database after 30 days. During this period you have the option to reactivate the mailboxes. A restore is not possible once deferred deletion has expired.

In the Designer, you can set an alternative delay on the EX0MailContact table. For more information on configuring the deferred deletion, refer to the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.
