Cannot delete mailbox

New Contributor



I am having a major issue with Office 365 Exchange mailbox.


When using Get-Mailbox, it shows this particular account in the list; however, when you try to remove-mailbox and enter the identity, it comes back with User 'Not Found'. The account clearly shows under powershell as well as the Exchange admin portal.

Hi Ryan,

Have you tried piping the remove-mailbox cmd after get-mailbox?


get-mailbox -identity | remove-mailbox

And after multiple attempts by Microsoft "support" to fix this issue; this worked! Thank you. 

No worries, glad I could help :D
