I tried right clicking the mailbox and selected the Move option. I ran through the wizard. It tells me that it cannot move the mailbox because the address list service is not running on the destination server. All Microsoft Exchange services are running. Please advise!

The service was running on the destination server. I tried restarting it but it failed to start again. Most of the potential solutions I've found by googling this particular error relate to servers where the service can be started manually but in my case it will not start period. I can try a reboot of the server tonight but can't bring it down currently so if you have anything I can try that wont force our users offline I would love to try them!

The best thing would be to restart the server as this will force the service to start or at least get to a consistant state. So I would suggest trying to arrange a quick 10 minute down time to restart the machine.
