Note: In case you want to copy the items from the source mailbox folders to the target mailbox folders, then, all you have to do is:

-Change the operation from $Message.Move($Target) to $Message.Copy($Target), in the MoveFolderItems function;

-Change the section below from the CreateFolder function:

if ($FindFolderResults.TotalCount){ $FolderId = $FindFolderResults.Id  }

else {

write-host "The folder $($FolderArray[$j]) is missing from the target mailbox" -ForegroundColor Yellow

Write-Host "Copying the folder $($FolderArray[$j]) with its subfolders from the source to the target mailbox..." -ForegroundColor White

$NewFolder = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.Folder]::Bind($service,$Folder.Id)

$NewFolder.Copy($FolderId)

}
