I just installed a new Exchange 2003 server into an existing Exchange 2000 environment.   Everything seemed to be going fine, however during the mailbox migration 4 mailboxes failed because the transaction logs drive run out of memory.  I miss to enable the circular log option for the store.  

Now I have duplicate copies of the 4 mailboxes that failed during the move.  There is a copy of each mailbox on both servers.  The mailboxes located at the old server are still functional; however I'm not able to move them to the new server because of the duplicate mailbox.  Im getting the following error when I attempt to move the mailboxes:

Does anyone have anything ideas on how to fix this?   Or if I can some how delete the mailbox entry from the new server without breaking anything?

what happened if you right click on new server mailbox store and click on Run Cleanup Agent.Will it mark new mailbox with red cross, if so then you can purge that mailbox and try to move again from old server....
