Public Folder Instances won't empty

I'm picking up finalizing an Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 migration months later after one of my peers dropped the ball on it.

The Exchange 2003 environment is a cluster...not sure if that plays a part or not.

There are a handful of public folder instances that won't finish replicating. I have to believe they were started to be replicated several months ago, so I feel like enough time should have passed.

Not sure where to do. I've tried a few things to try to push it along. These public folders (subfolders of parent folders) are tiny. The largest is 2MB.

I've verified that the Exchange server can communicate with the CAS server on port 25 using telnet, and the Exchange 2003 server is not using a smarthost.
