I had a user on Exchange 2003. I migrated his MB to Exchange 2010. Now want to temporarily move him back to Exchange 2003 & I keep getting a failure when I try to move him back to Exchange 2003.

Attached is the error message.

Are you getting event ID 9667 on the Exchange 2003 server in the Application event log when you try and move the mailbox to it?

Moving mailboxes from Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to Exchange Server 2003? Consider the following:

The move process is performed offline, and end-users won't be able to access their mailboxes during the move.

Perform the move from the server running Exchange 2010 by using the move request cmdlets in the Exchange Management Shell. You can't use Exchange System Manager on an Exchange 2003 server to move the mailboxes.

If you're moving a mailbox that has a personal archive associated with it, you must disable the archive before moving the mailbox. For details, see Disable a Personal Archive for a Mailbox.

If you’re moving a mailbox to Exchange 2003, you must disable single-item recovery and purge the Recoverable Items folder. For details, see Clean Up the Recoverable Items Folder.

Have a look at this interesting article which states to install the hotfix I mentioned earlier first (KB972077) and then if you are still getting the event, increase the quota:

Thanks for the points, did end up just installing the hotfix or did you have to change the registry too in the end?
