I keep getting a pair of errors when doing my scripted Exchange 2007 backups...

The errors (there are 2) are likely related, so I posted them below:

Log Name:      Application
Source:        Exchange Migration
Event ID:      1008
Task Category: Export Mailbox
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
The export-mailbox task for mailbox '<username>' failed.
Error: This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items specified for this move mailbox operation.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">

    <EventID Qualifiers="49152">1008</EventID>

    <Security />
    <Data>This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items specified for this move mailbox operation.</Data>


Application Event

Event ID 1008

The export-mailbox task for mailbox ‘SuperBoss' failed.
Error:  Failed to copy messages to the destination mailbox store with error:
MAPI or an unspecified service provider.
ID no. : 00000000-0000-00000000

For more information, see Help...

Note that I purposely changed the name on the second error.

Any help would be appreciated.  All the references I see online refer to it being fixed inb Update Rollup 4 of Service Pack 1.  But we have Service Pack 3 Update Rollup 2...

Thanks in advance!

I forgot to mention that both errors occur during the export-mailbox PowerShell command

It looks like there are too many corrupted items in te mailbox for the export-mailbox command to succeed without you adding a -BadItemLimit parameter to it.
