Accidentally Delete a mailbox? Need to restore? No Problem.

First Open up exchange management console, expand reciepeint configuration and click on disconnected mailboxes. Then right click on the mail box you want to restore and click connect. Then connect it to a user.

What if your mailbox is not in the disconnected mailboxs? You will need to open up Exchange management shell and paste in Clean-MailboxDatabase “Mailbox Database” This will scan your database for for disconnected mailboxes that are not yet marked as disconnected. It will only search the database of the server you are currently on if you don’t specify other wise.

After you run that command close Exchange Console and restart it, your missing mailbox should appear in disconnected mailboxes.

If your database is not named Mailbox Database and you encounter an error simply paste Get-Mailboxdatabase into Exchange shell.
