Exchange Hybrid - Removed license state of mailbox

Copper Contributor

What happens to the online mailbox if the O365 license is removed and the account is disabled. I can't find it in get-mailbox and I don't see it as soft deleted 



Get-Mailbox -SoftDeletedMailbox | Select-Object Name,ExchangeGuid


If I assign the license again, the mailbox shows back up with items.

How long until an unlicensed mailbox gets removed or is deleted?
