Unable to manually remove mailboxes from old email system

We transferred from an old email system to Outlook 2010. I was able to transfer Users mailboxes to the new system by giving myself full access permission using the following steps: File>Info>Account Settings and adding the other mailboxes manually. After completing the transfers, I followed the same steps removing the mailboxes manually. Here is where I encountered the problems. The mailboxes were still appearing on my navigation pane. I tried to delete them by right clicking on the item but got the message to go to “Account Settings.” In “Account Settings,” the mailboxes do not appear. I then tried to open one of the mailboxes to view it but got a message that I do not have access to the mailbox as I had removed the full access permissions once I had completed moving the mailboxes. Can you help me with this problem? Thanks.

Hi Kevin,

On your new mail server their are two drives, which you have to configure the first one is F: which is for Mailbox database and G: for fodor's database.

For to move mails you may use the mail mover wizard or the move mail cmdlet. To use the mail wizard you will need to go to the action pane in the exchange management console. to use move mail cmdlet you will use the exchange management shell. The disadvantage os mail wizard is that it cannot move across forests so you can only use move mail cmdlet in such a situation. You cannot for example move mails from a 5.5 exchange version to 2007. Ensure that while doing this your Active Directory Connector is on. I hope that this writing has helped point out what you did not get right.
