  • Yes, you can but following below rules;

    • The move process is performed offline, and end-users won't be able to access their mailboxes during the move.
    • You can't move mailboxes to or from servers running Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or earlier. The target database must be on a server running Exchange 2007 SP3.
    • Perform the move from an Exchange 2010 server by using the move request cmdlets in the Exchange Management Shell. You can't use the Move-Mailbox cmdlets in Exchange 2007 to move the mailboxes.
    • If the mailbox that you're moving has an archive mailbox associated with it, you must disable the archive before moving the mailbox. 
    • If you’re moving a mailbox to Exchange 2007, you must disable single-item recovery and purge the Recoverable Items folder. For details, see Clean Up the Recoverable Items Folder.

  • Good suggested above.

    However, You can spend few minutes on this MS-Library to understand the mover request while trying to move mailbox back to the previous version.
