Did you create a special user account to run EXMerge with?  If not, you need to because the built-in administrator account specifically has DENY permissions on mailboxes.  Please see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823143

3.      In Exchange System Manager, open the properties of the target database object, and then add the security group that has full permissions on the Security page. If you do not add the group that has full permissions, you may receive the following error message in Exmerge:

In this step what is the target database object?   or where would it be located?

The target database object is the "Mailbox Store (SERVERNAME)" within the First Storage Group container.  Right click on that and open "Properties" > Security Tab.
