Just wanted to know what's your take on this... A user has left the company but may return in future. I would like to disable his AD account, archive all his emails, keep his mailbox and prevent new emails from being sent to him. What's the "best practice" method of doing this? Please enlighten and thanks in advance.
What I would do:
- Reset AD password
- Change SMTP address - leading to NDRs if new emails are sent to his/her previous address
- Logon as him/her and archive emails
- Disable AD account
- Hide address from GAL
