  • During a mailbox move, is the users mailbox unavailable?

    I have some large mailboxes to move from one EXCH03 server to another.

    Is the mailbox unavailable during the time it takes to move?

        No, Microsoft doesn't say that mailbox is unavailable while moving to different store. But it might have create a problem in movement. Hence best practice is not to use mailbox during movement. Thanks

          I have to move one last mailbox for a very demanding and unreasonable person. The box is about 10gigs. I tried to do it last night but it ran over 8 hours and I had to cancel it. I haven't been able to find a solid source of information that says whether or not the box can be used while it's moving.

          I'll try it on friday afternoon and let it go all weekend I guess.

            I can tell you from experience, without a doubt, that the mailbox is not available while it's being moved. It will not be available until the move is completed and the user's AD object has been updated relative to the new server/store.

              A mailbox is taken offline whilst being moved so it can't be used. 10GB is also a big mailbox in my opinion!

                mailbox is locked out during the move, any attempt to access it logs a 1022 in the app log.

                As for your demanding user, if he doesn't like how long it takes him to move his mailbox tell him to clean it, if not tell him to shut the hell up.
