Moving exchange 2007 mailboxes to a new store


i have a corrupt mailbox store, it mounts ok and works but veritas cannot back it up. Since the store is corrupt with no backup i cant run eseutil to repair. I have created a new store and moved all the mail to the new store. I now have a working database that backs up. I have dismounted the corrupt store. I have noticed that im getting an error about the sytem mailbox. These do not show up as you would expected (like 2003) Anyone know how i can move the system mailboxes or how to display them so i can remove the falty database

System Mailbox is store specific, so you need move the system mailbox, they are created in the new mailbox store as well...
Dismount and remove the corrupt database. Then immediately restart the Information Store service. That will recreate the system mailboxes for you.
