Moving mailboxes from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010:  Failed to cleanup the source mailbox after the move.

I've moved five mailboxes from my exchange 2003 server to my exchange 2010 server.  When the mailbox finishes moving, it says "conpleted with errors" when I view the message it says:

Warning: Failed to cleanup the source mailbox after the move.
Error details: MapiExceptionNotFound: Unable to delete mailbox. (hr=0x8004010f, ec=-214722123

The mailbox is working fine on exchange 2010, but when I look in the exchange 2003 system manager the mailboxes I moved still show up in the systems manager, they are not disconnected and still show up, they have 0 items in them, cause they moved to exchange 2010.  Is this a problem?  Is there a way to fix this?  Thanks.

Within Exchange System Manager, locate the mailbox store which has the orphaned mailbox.

Right click the mailbox –> Properties –> Limits Tab

Under Deletion settings, enter a number which is less than the age of the orphaned mailbox. In this case, this just happened, so I entered 0.

From here you can either start the mailbox management process by clicking on the server which hosts the store with the orphaned mailbox or you can stay in the same mailbox –> Properties and click on the Database tab. In Maintenance interval box, click Use custom schedule and click customize. In the list of days click the day that today is(your today). If  you are keeping this server/mailstore around, make sure you set this back to normal.

Once the mailbox management process completes, on the mailbox folder, right click and run cleanup agent and your orphaned mailbox should go away
