Delete the e-mail account for the new user (using Active Directory Users
and Computers).  Then wait for the system to synchronize itself.  Go
into System Manager, find the mailbox (under your first administrative
group, servers, server name, etc...), and "RECONNECT' the mailbox to the
new user (the one you just deleted the exchange mailbox for).  This will
allow you to reconnect the old mailbox to the new username, making them
The problem, all mail you are receiving right now, will be gone.  So
copy it all to a PST prior.

        Hello all, 
        I have a problem where a user account was deleted from the
system, including the mailbox (only done a few hrs ago but the system
was replicated). The user was re-created and not connected to the old
mailbox the admin who re-created, let the system set up a new account
(same email address). My dilemma is that I now have to connect the new
user (same name and email address) to the old mailbox.
