Exchange Mailbox Move Request Stuck on ‘Queued’


Recently i started doing bulk Mailbox Moves to New DB’s, during this process i found that all the new move-request jobs i started are all stuck on ‘Queued’ status.

To resolve this i did the following.

  1. List all Move-Request (just to make sure they still all in ‘Queued’ state)
  2. Restart the ‘MSExchangeMailboxReplication’ service.


Get-Service MSExchangeMailboxReplication |Restart-Service

After restarting the service you will notice the mailbox move starting again.



Sharing is caring!
