    [22/07/2008 11:55:36] [0] [ERROR] Error was found for user(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) because: Error occurred in the step: Approving object. An unknown error has occurred., error code: -2147221219

    Can anyone help

    Its probably a permissions problem you need to add the user that you are running the import command under to all Exchange Admin Groups

    Source: export-mailbox / import mailbox unknown error code -2147221219 - TechNet Forums

    There is some more information on this error message in these locations:

    Can I please take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting me in getting my Exchange 2007 working. I have just this one more small issue I have got this external dns mail.xxxx.org which I use for all our external e-mails. It forwards all external e-mail.

    I have set up a connector through the hub transport but the e-mails are getting stuck saying unreacheable.

    Howdy folks, i'm having a bit of a problem trying to import a PST file into our new Exchange 2007 server.
    The users we are moving to exchange have been using a basic email hosting service provided by Fasthosts (arrgh i know), they have been downloading there emails to outlook 2003 clients, i exported there existing personnel folder to a PST file and i used the management shell to import it.
    everything seems to go fine but when i check the users new exchange inbox nothing is there.

    here is the log after i run the import
    Are you sure you want to perform this action?
    Importing mailbox content from .pst file 'c:\inbox.pst' to mailbox 'Roddy
    Fergusson'. This operation may take a long time to complete.

    I also checked the size of the mailbox database and it doesn't seem to have taken any data as its still at 8KB. the file i was trying to imprt was 120mb and i tried to import the inbox only which is just over 4mb.
