Solution

Solution 1: This is the default behavior and prior to Enterprise Vault version 8.0 the only workaround was to "Set Failed message to 'Do Not Archive'" in the Exchange Mailbox Policy (see Related Articles).

From version 8.0, Enterprise Vault can be configured to continue the current archive run when a corrupt message is encountered by implementing a registry key.

1.  Open REGEDIT and browse to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Agents  ( 32 bit)
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Agents  (64 bit)

2.  Create a new DWORD Value

3.  Name the new value ContinueOnMissingItemErrors.

4.  Set the value data to 1 decimal.

5.  Restart the Enterprise Vault services.

Warning: Incorrect use of the Windows registry editor may prevent the operating system from functioning properly. Great care should be taken when making changes to a Windows registry. Registry modifications should only be carried-out by persons experienced in the use of the registry editor application. It is recommended that a complete backup of the registry and workstation be made prior to making any registry changes.
 
Solution 2: 
Extract the corrupted message, you can use Outlook exporting the item to a pst or using Microsoft Exmerge utility.
 

Solution 3:
Removing the affected message out of the mailbox to PST does not resolve the issue and the task is still "finding" the message in the mailbox. Try moving the mailbox to a different information store on the same Exchange server, this should filter out the corrupt messages.
