Hi All,

I've performed a less than smooth Exchange installation this weekend (you may come across my other thread!). One of my problems was importing PSTs into the new mailboxes using ExMerge.

I made sure I did everything correct - exported as 2002 PST file, renamed to exchange mailbox name, gave a user the correct (read/send as) permissions BUT the exmerge.log just generated a long list of these (we tried with a couple of different PSTs):

Error copying messages from folder '\Inbox' (Unknown Error)

Some mail did import successfully but a small minority (something like 5% of it). 'Unknown Error' though! I don't have a clue. I feel I've done everything right. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks
Nick

Probably corrupt items. Not a great deal you can do about them. If the log shows which messages it was, open the pst file and find the messages. They are usually spam.

You may need to increase the logging level of ExMerge.  This is done in the ExMerge.ini file (the original version is heavily commented so it's easy to change the configuration).

Solved this one.

I think it was down to my sloppyness. Instead of creating a special Exmerge account with the correct permissions, I applied the 'receive as' and 'send as' allow permissions direct on to the administrator account. Now, this would have been OK, but the administrator account was in a couple of groups who also had 'deny' applied to those permissions.

Whilst, strangely it seemed to partially work, as soon as I removed the deny permissions form those 2 groups also, it fully worked.

I know this solution doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, but it's the only thing I did before it started working! It was either the above or I just got lucky!

Cheers
Nick
