I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Seems pretty clear - the mailbox has corrupt messages.

    Obtain MFCMapi from Microsoft’s website.
    Run the downloaded file and extract the files to an appropriate location.
    Run MFCMapi.exe
    Click Session -> Logon and Display Store Table.
    Select the appropriate profile (usually “Outlook”) and click OK.
    Select MDB -> Get Mailbox Table…
    Type the appropriate server name for the exchange server and click OK.
    Double click on the mailbox you’d like to manage.
    Expand the Root Container -> Top of Information Store
    Double click the mailbox folder where the corrupted message is contained.
    Find the corrupted message in the list.
    Right click the message -> Delete Message
    Choose Permanent delete passing DELETE_HARD_DELETE (unrecoverable) as Deletion Style and click OK.

Or you can move the mailbox using Exchange powershell and specified the "BadItemLimit"

I think this issue is occurring only when you have no permission to move the user mailbox. To fix this issue you need to reset the permissions on the user AD account.
