Exchange 2010 some users mailboxes have a green arrow

I've never really looked that closely before, but in the Mailbox settings of Exchange 2010 some of the user accounts have different icons:

enter image description here

What's the difference between having a culturally-sensitive icon of a non-gender specific person and a green arrow?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I know nothing about Exchange, but is it possible that it's a linked mailbox? (At least, that's what some googling suggests). – squircle Apr 26 '11 at 23:41
Hey, that's some good thinking. We did deploy a 2nd exchange server a few months ago and moved a bunch of mail accounts over to it (I'm not sure which ones were moved though, so it that could be it) – Mark Henderson Apr 26 '11 at 23:44
"Each recipient type is represented by a unique icon in the Exchange Management Console.." The green arrow represents a recent move request. – jscott Apr 26 '11 at 23:44

The users with Green Arrows have local move requests still in the system. These move requests have likely succeeded and were not cleared.

See the answer here to a previous question for how to clear them.

Perfect, thanks. That question is actually a duplicate of mine, so I'll give you the tick and also close it as a dupe,. – Mark Henderson Apr 26 '11 at 23:48

green icons indicate that the mailbox still has a move request assiociated with it. The blue one is a native exchange 2010 mailbox.

Have you recently migrated he green mailboxes from another server?

Yeah, a couple months ago. I just cleared the move request queue now ;) – Mark Henderson Apr 26 '11 at 23:49
