Does the account you are using have rights to the target mailbox? Try opening the target mailbox with that account through outlook. Also check and make sure the target folder does not already exist.

I am using lets say account "admin" to copy "user1"s mailbox in to a folder in "user2"s

So i am logged on as "admin" and running the following script in Exhange 2007 Shell.

Export-Mailbox -Identity "user1" -TargetMailbox "user2" -TargetFolder "somefolder"

Sorted it gave "admin" rights to both accounts("user1" & "user2"), and it worked like a charm.
