Enterprise Vault fails to archive or import a Calendar item with 'empty' attachments and may report Event ID 6469, "An exception has occurred."

Problem

Calendar items that contain an 'empty' attachment, such as an e-mail (or MSG) file that is completely blank, will fail to archive from a mailbox and will not import from a PST file.

Error Message

A D-Trace of the MigratorServer process when attempting to import a PST with such items may appear similar to the following:

Solution

Workaround:

Mailbox archiving:
Remove the problem attachment from the message prior to archiving.

PST import:
Change PST import policy to exclude the IPM.Appointment message class.  This will simply move all calendar items to the mailbox at the end of the migration.
