Did you follow this article at MS for removing Exchange 5.5:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=284148

That goes through every stage that you need to, which includes replication of the free/busy information.

I have checked in adsiedit and ran ldifde.exe i can see it in ldifde in notepad the object as follows:

folderPathname: OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK\EX:/o=EXGLOBAL/ou=OHIO01\OAB Version 2
where "ohio01" was my exchange 5.5 site which is no longer in our exchange org and my org name is "EXGLOBAL".

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Have you removed the replica to the Exchange 5.5 from the new server and ensured the the new server is listed as a replica for every folder?

For the free busy connector then you should be able to delete it, as there is no equivilent in Exchange 2003. Exchange 2003 does have a Schedule Plus element, but this is managed via the system folders.

If you have removed all the replicas for the OAB folders then that AD entry should be redudant and can be deleted, but you have to be careful.
