Hello we just migrated over to a 2010 exchange box from 03 exchange, I've got all the users moved over except the administrator inbox. I had about 4 mailboxs error out on me during the move over and a quick fix was to archive the mailbox delete the mailbox off the old server and install it on the new server. You can do that with the administrator account, all other users when I delete on the old, id go to the new, hit new mailbox and the name of the deleted mailbox would be there, the administrator account is nowhere to be found. If I delete the account on the old, how do I setup on the 2010 box?

You could always delete the administrator account using adsiedit and the just recreate the mailbox in 2010.

By that I mean delete the admin mailbox and not the actual account. :)

Did you use your administrator account when you did the initial setup of exchange 2010? If so exchange would have already created a system account for your administrator account if I am not mistaken.
