If the mailbox archive is exported to the original mailbox more than once, the MAPI attribute Entry-ID is modified the second time the item is archived again and therefore is not recognized as requiring removing on the second export to original mailbox.


WORKAROUND: Delete shortcuts/stubs manually in MS Outlook.
