Greetings,

While logged into OWA Exchange 2010 user gets an error "a problem occurred while trying to use your mailbox" when trying to get into some of the online archive folders.
In Outlook client online Archive folders are visible but don't contain anything in them while item count suggests that there are items.

Any help is appreciated


Thank you

WHat if you move his Mailbox to another Database ... just to rule out any mailbox corruption issue.

Was this a migration from some earlier Exchange Version ?
Is the user having Email address and the Primary email isnt messedup ?

Rancy,

nope, this was not a migration
email is fine and operating as it should.
the problem began while user was moving data from .pst to online archive
