Use the Get-RemoveMailbox cmdlet to view information about deleted mailboxes in your organization.


Get-RemovedMailbox [-Identity <RemovedMailboxIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-ResultSize <Unlimited>]

If you can view the deleted mailbox using the Get-RemovedMailbox cmdlet, you can recover the deleted mailbox by using the New-Mailbox cmdlet.

Error Description

 

This example displays all the removed mailboxes that are available for recovery in your organization

Get-RemovedMailbox

This example recovers the mailbox for a deleted account named "Tamara Johnston". The account was deleted without preserving the Windows Live ID, so you must specify a new password value to recover Tamara's account.
