We recently had a database corruption that we were able to recover from in Exchange 2007. The final step of this process including creating a new Mailbox Store and moving the mailboxes over to this new database. Everything worked fine all up until I unmounted the old database. At this point I began (as the administrator) to get NDR's for the System Attendant. I mounted the old database again and this error stopped occuring. Any idea why this is happening? I'd like to remove our old database file as it is rather large.

I believe you can remove the original, and then restart the information store service and it should recreate the system mailbox on your new mailbox database.

That seemed to solve the issue with the System Attendant. Now I'm seeing a bunch of Applications warnings in the log related to the MSExchangeIMAP4 service:

The Outlook Web Access server URL for user Lastname, Firstname could not be set.value

I see 5 of this consecutively, one every minute for 5 minutes. All of my users except for one Mac user is set up using Outlook or OWA and is not using the IMAP protocol.

That is a seperate issue to this one I would think? What is the exact error message?

If you don't think it is related I can award points and open a new question. I was assuming it was related because I saw it pop up now.
