Moving mailboxes on Exch 2k7 stuck at suggested contacts and will not move

Moving users in exchange 2007 and will not get past suggested contacts.  It shows more contacts than they have and give the cylon/knight rider bar status in the gui move.  Happens in cmd line move as well.  Instead of moving suggested contacts 100/200 i get 1257/253.  I have gone to the client side and cleared the suggested contacts in outlook and still get the error.  HELP!!!

Apologies I know this is old, but some people may benefit from my response here.

I see this quite frequently happen on the Calendar/Suggested Contacts folder during an Exchange 2007 Mailbox Move. The "fix" involves logging in to the mailbox, preferably as a non cached mode Outlook profile, and then running some steps:

Create a temp folder to use under the affected folder (e.g. "TempCalendar" or "TempContacts"), move all of the items from the affected folder into the temp folder, then move them back after. I usually delete the Temp folder as well.

The move request will now work. This fixes it for me every time without fail. I have no explanation for this other than moving the items then moving them back seems to refresh the items and allow them to move successfully.
