Recently I was moving mailboxes from a 2000 server store to a new 2003 store
(new server) and one of the mailboxes failed to move. It just hung the
process. The mailbox showed up on the new server, but very small compared to
the 40mg on the original mailbox. The original box was still on the old
server as well. I tried to connect to the new and the old mailbox with no
success (OWA, Outlook, POP, IMAP) getting what look like permission errors.
I deleted and purged the new mailbox and then reconnected the old one back to
the original account. Reset all permissions, updated the RUS on that domain,
still no joy. I tried using an account with full access on the store and it
too fails. Exmerge fails stating that it can't open the store, check
permissions, etc. I can exmerge other mailboxes with no issue. I've run
mailbox cleanup multiple times, tried to delete and purge this mailbox, but
purge just hangs ESM and the mailbox stays put.
Anyone have any ideas here? It seems by the errors that the permissions on
the mailbox aren't correct, but I have reset them manually (self, etc) and
still have the issues.
