You install Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in hosting mode by using the /hosting switch.
You create two tenant organizations (organization 1 and organization 2) in the Exchange Server 2010 SP1 environment.
Organization 1 contains a mail-enabled user (user A).
You create an external contact in organization 2 for user A.
You run the Start-ManagedFolderAssistant cmdlet so that the Managed Folder Assistant will process user A’s mailbox in organization 1.
In this scenario, the Managed Folder Assistant does not process the mailbox. Additionally, the following event is logged in the Application log:
Log Name: Application Source: MSExchangeMailboxAssistants Date: Date & Time Event ID: 10021s Task Category: Managed Folder Assistant Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: Computer Description: The MRM Assistant will skip processing mailbox mailbox.

This issue occurs because the Managed Folder Assistant uses a global scope incorrectly and does not use a unique identifier to open the mailbox. Therefore, two objects that have the same Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) address are returned, and the Managed Folder Assistant does not process the mailbox.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:
2685289 Description of Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
