i am moving a mailbox from one exchange 2003 sp 2 server to a new one with the same specs.   the mailbox move exceeds 100% and goes up to 2000%.  It continues this cycle indefinitely and i have to cancel it.  It stays on "common views" during the move process.

the only thing i see in the logs are logon failures for the person which i do not think is related to the issue.  please assist.

Thanks

the logon failures are because the mailbox is not available during the move process

as far as the above 100% status, i've seen that happen when there are corrupted items
how big is this mailbox?

yeah...there must be a corrupted item somewhere in that mailbox; i've seen that several times when moving

being that small, i'd say just export the mailbox to a pst, then delete from the old server and create on the new server
