When you run ExMerge 2000 against an Exchange 2000 server, ExMerge may not finish successfully with output similar to the following Exmerge.log. Even if you run ExMerge 2000 for maximum logging (use the -LogMax option at a command prompt), you see this same output:
[10:05:12] (Thread0)Copying data from mailbox 'newmail' ('USER1-2') on Server 'PLATFUN' to file 'C:\EXMERGEDATA\USER1-2.PST'.
[10:05:14] (Thread0)Errors encountered. Copy process aborted for mailbox 'newmail' ('USER1-2').
[10:05:14] For more information, please refer to file C:\ExMerge-(Thread0).LOG
[10:05:15] (Thread0)Copying data from mailbox 'SQLAdmin' ('SQLADMIN') on Server 'PLATFUN' to file 'C:\EXMERGEDATA\SQLADMIN.PST'.
[10:05:17] (Thread0)Errors encountered. Copy process aborted for mailbox 'SQLAdmin' ('SQLADMIN').
[10:05:17] For more information, please refer to file C:\ExMerge-(Thread0).LOG
[10:05:17] Number of items copied from the source store for all mailboxes processed: 2
[10:05:17] Total number of folders processed in the source store: 11
[10:05:17] 1 mailboxes successfully processed. 7 mailboxes were not successfully processed. 0 non-fatal errors encountered.
[10:05:17] Process completion time: 0:00:00:20
This behavior occurs because the account you are logged on as does not have Receive As and Send As permissions to the mailboxes on which ExMerge is exporting and importing messages. Even the Full Exchange administrator account does not have Receive As and Send As permissions by default.
To resolve this issue, grant the account that you are using to run ExMerge Receive As and Send As permissions on the Mailbox store:
