Can Exchange 2010 NEW-MOVEREQUEST command just copy the mailbox instead of deleting the source?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are using the combined Exchange Powershell "prepare-moverequest / New-MoveRquest" commands to migrate mailboxes from CompanyA to CompanyB in a cross-forest migration. It is working great but when it runs it deletes the mailbox off of the CompanyA exchange server.

Can the commands be used to do the migration but leave the original mailbox there in case things blow up?
