Diagnostic context:
Lid: 23226 — ROP Parse Start —
Lid: 27962 ROP: ropOpenFolder [2]
Lid: 27962 ROP: ropIncrCfg [112]
Lid: 27962 ROP: ropUpldStStrmBegin [117]


Typically this issue is caused by the mailbox containing corrupt rules or out of office.


From Powershell execute the following to determine the error.

Typically the issue relates to corrupt outlook rules

Get-Inboxrule – Mailbox “name”
Get-MailboxAutoReplyconfiguration – identity “name”

If these fail open outlook with the following switch

  1. outlook.exe /cleanrules
  2.  View the users rules and auto reply
    – you may recieve errors if you do just continue
  3. Close outlook
  4. Reopen outlook
  5. Confirm you have no errors
  6. Re-run the powershell commands above and then move the mailbox.

    Thanks for the tip… just 1 note you have a typo in the lines. no space between “-” and “identity”

    Get-Inboxrule –Mailbox “name”
    Get-MailboxAutoReplyconfiguration –identity “name”

    and this did identify that there was an out of office on preventing the move
