One of the most overlooked steps in mailbox provisioning is deletion. Orphaned mailboxes can lead to legal problems if certain data is not deleted and technical problems such as database bloat and increased storage costs. Use the simple PowerShell commands outlined here or the Exchange Administration UI to list out last logon times to identify mailboxes that have not been accessed for long periods of time.

Disable or disconnect it first to ensure that critical business processes are not using it.
