Mailbox Move ‘Stuck’ Queued


KB ID 0001094 Dtd 09/08/15


When doing a migration I usually create a test account and move that to the new server. Then I can mail flow both from old to new server and to/from external addresses from both old and new servers. So when the mailbox just sat ‘Queued’ for a while I was starting to get concerned.

Even applying the Exchange ‘cup of coffee’ rule didn’t make a difference.


Nice simple one to fix. Windows Key+R > services.msc {enter}. Locate and restart the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Replication service.

Now refresh the move request and it will either have moved (or be moving).
