Move Mailbox from Exchange 2010 back to Exchange 2003

I need to move my mailbox "Local Mailbox Move" back to my Exchange 2003 FROM Exchange 2010. Reading the article's support scenarios: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd298174.aspx

I have to use the management shell. I get an error each time when running: the whatif and I also get an error when running the actual command

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'email@address.com' -TargetDatabase "MailboxStoreName" -WhatIf

The error I get

"The operation couldn't be performed because object 'email@address.com" couldn't be found on 'One of my domain controllers'

    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [New-MoveRequest], ManagementObjectNotFoundException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 885CD542,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.NewMoveRequest

Any suggestions? Should I use the: -MRSServer parameter?
