Exchange 2010 SP1 introduces a new Exchange Management Shell (EMS) cmdlet New-MailboxRepairRequest that allows an administrator to check and repair a users mailbox. 

Here is the syntax

New-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox <MailboxIdParameter> -CorruptionType <MailboxStoreCorruptionType[]> [-Archive <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DetectOnly <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

New-MailboxRepairRequest -Database <DatabaseIdParameter> -CorruptionType <MailboxStoreCorruptionType[]> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DetectOnly <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Lets look at a quick example.

[PS] C:\>New-MailboxRepairRequest -Mailbox This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. -CorruptionType SearchFolder, AggregateCounts, ProvisionedFolder, FolderView | fl

Here is the output

Mail Box Repair

After the job has been submitted you can look at your event viewer to check the status of the mailbox repair. You will look for the following event IDs 10047 A mailbox-level repair request started, 10048 The repair request successfully completed, 10050 The mailbox repair request task skipped a mailbox, 10059 A database-level repair request started, 10062 Corruption was detected.

You will see something like this

It is important to note that the repair events will only show up on the mailbox server where the mailbox is located. I ran the above command on a CAS server but had to go to mbx01 to check the event viewer.

    Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly.
    I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the
    same outcome.

    this problem.
