  • Moved Mailbox to different store but still there

    Hi All,

    We are using exchange 2003 with different storage groups and information stores. For one of the X-employer I moved his mailbox from 1 information store i.e A-Information store to i.e. x-information store, its has moved successfully. but for some reason it is still showing in A-information store and same time in x-information store also. Can any please advise why its showing in both information stores and how to fix this problem.

    Regards

    Sam

    Not unusual.
    Run cleanup agent (right click and choose the option) and you should find the old one will get a red cross on it. Doesn't mean the data is accessible.

      Move the mailbox back. This usually removes the stub object in the previous information store. Then run your online maintenance schedule. Do note though that the movemailbox may fail. This error can be ignored as long as the stub is removed.

        This is completely normal. The mailbox will continue to show up until two things occur:

        1. The deleted mailbox retention time for that mailbox passes

        2. The mailbox cleanup process runs as part of the online maintenance process
