    To do this you must open up the Exchange Management Shell on Exchange 2007.  Then at the prompt you will want to find the GUID for the mailbox you wish to delete.  You can do this by typing the following command:

    Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

    You should then see a prompt like this.

    To remove individual mailboxes use the  following command with your servers info replaced in bold:
    Remove-Mailbox -Database “Database-Name” -StoreMailboxIdentity MailboxGuid -confirm:$false

    After this runs check to see if the GUID is gone by running the “Get-MailboxStatistics” command again.  After this has been run the mailbox has been removed from the system.

    To remove all disconnected mailboxes use the following commands, please note replace “Mailbox Store” with your information.

    This command will query the current disconnected mailboxes.
    $users = Get-MailboxStatistics | where-object { $_.DisconnectDate -ne $null } | Select DisplayName,MailboxGuid

    This command will use the query to remove the mailboxes.
    $users | ForEach { Remove-Mailbox -Database “Mailbox Store” -StoreMailboxIdentity $_.MailboxGuid -confirm:$false }

    I found this issue with Toshiba Strata PBX System (CHSUB672A) that with the handset a message light would blink but no message. After doing some research I found that if you pick up the handset and dial # 409 this is resolve this issue.

    The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50).

    If you get this error, it’s not because your file names are too long, or you have funny characters in the file names that don’t play well with the intended destination server.  This issue comes from Apple’s OS X file extended attributes for each mac file there are at least 1 hidden file.  These are resource forks and if they are courrupt or have specific permissions set it can cause problems.  If you are looking at the affected files on a PC you will notice a bunch of hidden files with a prefix of “._ “.  NTFS Streams is the best option to have enabled for your mac if you are sharing files with other file system servers or computers.  This will also keep the system clean of unnecessary files.

    To fix this problem you must first enable the root user account.  To do this Open Directory Services found usually in Applications > Utilities, in OS X 10.6 you have to open System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options > under “Network Account Server” Click on “Join”, then you will see the option for “Open Directory Utility”.  When you are finally there you must “unlock” to make changes then at the top menu bar click “Edit” > Enable Root User Account.  I highly recommend making a complex password; this is very important for security purposes.  For a complex password I recommend using http://www.randompassword.com.  After creating this you must open up the Terminal Command Line Utility found under Applications > Utilities then do the following commands.

    1)       su root
    2)      [use the root password you just created]
    3)      cd /etc
    4)      touch nsmb.conf
    5)      emacs nsmb.conf
    6)      [Copy and Paste the following]
    7)      Control+X > Control+S > Control+X > Control+C
    8)      Exit Terminal and Reboot the Computer.

    When you’ve completed this and the computer starts back up it will refresh the networks settings and find this file and force NTSF streams when connecting to other servers.
