sounds like something in that user is corrupt...  does it work for everyone else?

if it's just one user, do this:
in exchange GUI, create an additional storage group
then move the corrupt user into that group, it will strip out any corrupt objects in the mailbox
then move it back to the first storage group
and delete the additional now-empty group

you might do well to copy the PST's to a real, internal hard drive before the import... strange things can happen when streaming huge files thru usb

As per the Error code (0x80040107):  user's outlook profile configured in "cached mode"?
disable cached mode and check it ...
