Hi All,

we have a major issue in that we moved some mailboxes to our new exchange 2010 server to find out that those mailboxes no longer receive mail (2007 box is still in play and receiving the mail) so as this was happening we decided to move the mailboxes back to 2007 and then fix exchange 2010 with a test mailbox so that we know its working correctly.

The issue is this, exchange 2007 throws up an error when we try to move the mailbox back onto it:

Move-Mailbox : Error was found for Steven Marks ( because: E
rror occurred in the step: Opening source mailbox. Failed to open mailbox with
error: An unknown error has occurred., error code: -1056749262

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : F97DE5B,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientT
