Unable to delete the mailbox store
Hi I am unable to delete the mailbox store , it gives the error message One or more users currently use this mailbox store. These users must be moved to a different mailbox store or be mail disabled before deleting this store. ID no: c1034a7f Exchange System Manager There are no mailboxes connected to the mailbox store , there are only system mailboxes which are part of the mailbox store Regards Sonali

Check for any entries which exists on the HomeMDBBL on the specific DB. You shouldn't be seeing anything user mailboxes usually as you mentioned that only system mailbox exists. If anything exists, check for the corresponding object in Active Directory and remove the exchange attributes once again. Or remove it through ADSIDEIT . dsquery * "CN=CONFIGURATION,DC=Domainname,DC=COM" -filter cn=Exchangedatabasename -attr homemdbbl If its the first database which got created on that server, then you need to move the system attendant mailbox to a different db to delete that mailbox. Check the below blog to understand how to move the system attendant mailbox. http://exchangeshare.wordpress.com/2008/08/19/how-to-move-system-attendant-mailbox-exchange-2003/ Good luck Shaba-Cheers Shaba

Find "Exchange Reciients", select the "Storage" tab, select the "Mailboxes in this mailbox store" and use the "Browse" button to find the database. You'll easily find users that have never connectoed to their mailboxes that way. You can remove the mailbox from the user, or move the mailbox to another database. --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP
