Note When this issue occurs, you cannot use the Get-Mailbox cmdlet or the Get-MailboxFolderStatistics cmdlet to obtain information about the corrupted mailboxes.
This issue occurs because certain mailboxes contain invalid entryIDs for default folders. When the invalid entryIDs are detected, an ArgumentException exception occurs in the EdgeTransport.exe process. Additionally, the exception is not handled.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
