Remove disconnected Mailboxes on Exchange 2007

Posted on by .

In Exchange 2007 you can’t remove disconnected mailboxes from the GUI you can do this from the powershell.

Show the disconnected mailboxes on the server.

Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

Remove one disconnected mailbox.

Remove-Mailbox -Database -StoreMailboxIdentity -confirm:$false

To remove all mailboxes at ones we have to set a variable then give the command to cleanup disconnected mailboxes.

$users = Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

$users | ForEach { Remove-Mailbox -Database “Mailbox Database” -StoreMailboxIdentity $_.MailboxGuid -confirm:$false }

To remove all disconnected mailboxes on a server in every datastore use the following command.

$users = Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid,Database$users | ForEach { Remove-Mailbox -Database $_.Database -StoreMailboxIdentity $_.MailboxGuid -confirm:$false }
