There is no way to move mailboxes between containers.

When a new mailbox is created it has to be resolved, yes. It does not need
to be resolved by the user though, one could write a script or use a 3rd
party tool to update the profile. There are plenty of other issues beyond
this simple one which are much trickier to solve though.

Sounds right, it is trying to access a mailbox which no longer exists. It is
trying to access the mailbox based on it's unique ID.

The easiest way is not to move them. I've found few, if any compelling
reasons to move them in the past.
