Disable Mailbox in Exchange 2007

My understanding of Disabling a mailbox in EMC is the active directory user account will stick around and the mailbox will be deleted in x amount of days.

Why is the mailbox still deleted (or moved to "disconnected") when you "disable" it? On the flip side, "Removing" from EMC will delete the AD user account and the mailbox will be marked for deletion in x amount of days.

We have third party s/w that assigns permissions to users' mailboxes, calendars, contacts etc. Is there an easier way to remove all users permissions. Maybe even from command shell?

 

Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Disabling an account disconnects it because that is the function of disabling the account in Exchange. Are you saying you want the account to remain active but the user’s rights be removed from it? You can disconnect it and then reconnect it to a “dummy” account which will effectively remove all rights from the previous owner.
