During an Exchange 2003 migration at a startup I was previously working for , I 
had an issue with several accounts that were on a Exchange 5.5 server that had 
multiple mailboxes associated with the same user account. To prepare for 
Exchange 2003, I created new user accounts ( user1, user 2, etc ) and 
associated the accounts with the mailboxes that had the same user account 
mapped to it, so that they would have a one to one mapping.

I installed the AD connector for Exchange 2003, when I went through the AD list 
after replication occurred it renamed several of the accounts. I corrected the 
names, and ran AD synchronization.

I then exported all the mail in the mailboxes that I created the one to one 
mappings for into PST files and delete the five mailboxes that were no longer 
needed. Several minutes after replication occurred the accounts that were 
associate with multiple mailboxes also were deleted. 

Can anyone explain why this could have occurred? Could this have been related 
to SID history issue?
Could this be related to the Cisco Unity Connector or the Blackberry Enterprise 
server connector adding additional hooks into the mailboxes? Has any one else 
experienced this?
