  • Disable E-Mail Access

    system: Exchange 2003 SP2 (6.5.7638.1), with OWA 2003 front-end web access

    I have received noticed that later this week, we are terminating an employee.

    This request is a bit unusual in that management

    (1) does NOT want to disable his account, so the terminated employee can still log into our portal and access his pay-check information

    (2) does want to disable the employee's access to his e-mail box, but

    (3) does NOT want to delete the e-mail box (I'm guessing somebody in the legal department will want access to it)

    How does one disable a user's access to e-mail without disabling the account?

    Re: Disable E-Mail Access

    Make sure you have configured the option to keep deleted mailboxes for (x) days at the database.

    If this option is set, just delete the mailbox, this will actually not delete the mailbox it will only break the connection between the mailbox and the user account.

    If someone from the legal department want access to that mailbox data later you have to reconnect the mailbox to a existing account.
