Outlook 2003 - Unable to copy/move folders as private items exist

Outlook tells me it's unable to copy/move folders as private items exist. I'm trying to copy from one mailbox to another and it keeps stating this.

I have tried reinstalling Outlook 2003 and applying SP3. Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, DReade83.

Are there any private items in the folders?

There may be. It belongs to someone in HR so don't want to go rooting through it. :-)

I've had an idea though... if I export the whole mailbox to a PST, and import it into the other mailbox, would that work?

If you sign on as that HR person, then I expect it will work.  Otherwise, I'm not sure.

Why not simply ExMerge the data out to PST - rather than logging on with the user account - let the user continue using their outlook - unless that HR person is comfortable of you using their machine and take out time to export info into PST.

Once you have the PST in hand, create a new mailbox and provide the PST back to them or import them using Data File Management in OL
