BSOD while moving mailboxes 2k7 to 2k7. Error: 1056749262

In the process of moving a mailbox, my laptop crashed. Now we cannot access the user's mailbox. When we try to move the mailbox we get the following error.

Error was found for xxx@xxx.com (xxx@xxx.com) because: Error occurred in the step: Opening source mailbox. Failed to open mailbox with error: The operation failed.

Error occurred in the step: Approving object. Failed to open mailbox with error: The operation failed.

I can access the users mailbox properties in EMC, but the end user cannot open Outlook.

Please advise.

Mailbox seems to be corrupt during the move. I would suggest you to delete the mailbox and recreate it again. And restore the data from backup. If you are getting any bounce back message after recreating it....Just add the X500 connector in the Email Address Tab.

Forget to mention why X500?

Because outlook.nk2 store the old legacy exchagne dn value and user with cache mode enabled might get the bounce back. So you can add the old Legacyexchangedn value.

Yup. Lesson learned. If you're going to migrate a mailbox, it's best to do it on a RDP session to the mail server just incase something like a BSOD happens.

Mailbox is totally corrupt. We ended up doing as amitkulshrestha said.

Whacked the mailbox, recreated it and restored the data from backup. User only lost a few hours of email while all this was done.
