Hi,

Please see the following that I have found on another site:

Anonymous (Last update 7/10/2007):
I ran ISINTEG and retried the mailbox move but still kept getting this error. I opened the mailbox in Outlook and turned off the home page in Outlook Today to reveal mail items in the Mailbox - <user name> folder. I moved these to a new folder so that the user can sort them out and resubmitted the move.

Mihai Andrei (Last update 9/8/2006):
This problem may occur if the store to which you want to move the mailbox contains a size restriction. See M924174 to solve this problem.

Ionut Marin (Last update 5/8/2005):
As the error message states this problem may be corrected by running Isinteg.exe. See M184300, M188627, and the link to "EventID 8507 from source MSExchangeIS" for more details on this issue.

See M318726 to resolve this problem.

I tried by removing the checkboxes from Limits option, however the mailboxes are of very small size but the solution didn't work.
What i have observed is most of the errors are coming on Calender folder e.g.

Parent folder name: Calendar; Message subject: IPM.Configuration.WorkHours; Error code: 0x80070057.

Will KB artical 318726 work for us because it is ment for Exchange 2000 and we are moving from Exchange 2003.

i tried mdbvw32 but it's not working on the server. Any of the mdbvw32 menu doesn't work, when i click on them nothing happen and not of the sub-options come.

Any other alternate you may suggest. I am affraid of running isinteg as the database is more than 50GB and it require a long downtime which i want to avoid.

Ok since your mailboxes are still on E2k3 (why not export the entire calendar for the faulty mailbox) and then move the mailbox - its practically evident that the corruption lies some where in those calendar. We can sit back later, argue where the corruption was - but right now you have work to do.

My advise - you ExMerge / OL to take out the entire information from those mailboxes - delete the information (since you have all the info into PST by then). - Now try to move the mailbox.

Alternatively, i was thinking of using the move mailbox command with -BadItemLimit switch.

Move-Mailbox -identity "alias" -targetdatabase "E2k7 box\Database name" -BadItemLimit: "Specify any limit preferably between 1-100"
