problems opening Oulook after maiblox move

hello all-

i just moved a mailbox from one exchange 2007 server (server1) to another exchange 2007  server (server2). no problems there. when i try and login as that user whose mailbox got moved, i get this error when opening up outlook 2007:

cannot open your default email folders. ms exchange is currently busy.

yet when i look at the settings for this user on server1, it says that this mailbox resides now on server2.

the reason i am adding another server is because users from our corporate office are complaining that outlook is getting sluggish from their end. server1 is our main exchange server and is located on our data bunker and those users at corp are connected via an mpls line but some of them have huge, huge mailbox sizes so we decided to go ahead and get another exchange box, load just the mailbox role and transfer their mailboxes to it, that way they are running it locally. i am now testing with one dummy mailbox and am now stuck with the error i mentioned above.

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

create a new mailbox on the new server and check in Outlook if you are able to configure a profile for new user... Also try a repair/r-create Outlook Profile of the user...

ok, i created a new mailbox on the new server that and then when i tried to open outlook for this new user, i get the ff:

the name cannot be matched to a name in the address list.

also, not sure where i would run the repair /r -create command. i tried that inside the exchange shell and it did not recognize it.

right click the new user mailbox in the EMC under Recipient Configuration and go to the properties... Uncheck the box that says 'Hide from Exchange Server List'... Try the Outlook again...

If this is your first Exchange 2007 server then you need to have Mailbox, Client Access and Transport role on the server, or at least somewhere in the network.

lastlostlast-

i did the things you asked me to do but still no dice. i could not do the repair since i cannot get into outlook with this user (new one you had me create) or with the user whose mailbox i moved hence i cannot run the repair from the Tools menu.

Try disabling the IPv6 on the server... For more information check "http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc671176.aspx"

Also apply Rollup Update 8 for the Exchange Server. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e1f5c8b2-c4f2-4eba-849b-e464d4f2869c&displaylang=en

after i added a connector to the first server in the hub transport on the second server, it fixed the sending problem.
