To recreate the Arbitration Mailboxes we first have to remove everything the accompanying user accounts, which can be found in CN=Users in Active Directory:

When the user accounts are deleted you can run the Get-Mailbox –Arbitration command again to see if they are really removed.
Setup.exe /PrepareAD /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms command again (from the correct installation media by the way) to recreate the Arbitration Mailboxes:

Enable-Mailbox –Arbitration –Identity "FederatedEmail.4c1f4d8b-8179-4148-93bf-00a95fa1e042"
Enable-Mailbox –Arbitration –Identity "SystemMailbox{1f05a927-8668-4003-adad-9b80758e86db}"
Enable-Mailbox –Arbitration –Identity "SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29-89c3-4034-b678-e6c29d823ed9}"
Enable-Mailbox –Arbitration –Identity "SystemMailbox{bb558c35-97f1-4cb9-8ff7-d53741dc928c}"

Get-Mailbox –Identity "SystemMailbox{e0dc1c29*" –Arbitration | Set-Mailbox –Arbitration –DisplayName "Microsoft Exchange"
The federation Arbitration Mailbox needs to have a 1MB quota limit set to it, this can be achieved using the following command:
