      Quick question. What permissions does the account you are running Exmerge under have on the mailboxes? Normally you need at least readas and sendas permissions:

        Full mailbox access, for the user under you're running Exmerge, should do it...

          this should help you out.

          once you have granted the full mailbox rights to the administrator or the user who is performing the backups, then execute exmerge again.
