Dear all ...

I have about 100 old users within the active directory . I have deleted them all with the box ( mark each selected mail box for deletion ) checked .
Using the Exchange 2000 system manager I have found that their mailboxes are marked with a red sign but they are still their occupying space .
I decided to delete them manually using the purge option .
Is there any way to automatically delete the user and his associated mailbox in a single step ?

Thanks

Hello Raed Al-Jarrah,

You would need to set the Deleted Mailbox Retention time to 0, but that wouldn't be a good idea.

When the day comes, where you by mistake delete an AD user, you will love and praise the Deleted Mailboxes Retention feature. You will then be able to recreate the user plus mailbox in minutes.

Regards
