If you have the option to take ownership as suggested by myzr7, give that a try. If you do have the option, myzr7 had an excellent idea.

As I think of other solutions, I will keep you advised.

Let direct our attention to the copy and paste. Can't you get to those folders, even one at a time, and then copy to a new folder? They will not be in the Email Client, but you will have them. Save them with the .eml extension.
