Out of curiosity, have you switched servers lately?  If so, did you use KB822931?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822931

Follow the step to rehome it to a new server and then let it regen.

One of these will fix your problem.

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=817377

last resort use this method

The last one will certainly fix the problem, but reset the OAB.

Please check your /dc=local/dc=CollinsGoodman/cn=Configuration/cn=Services/cn=Microsoft Exchange/cn=COLLINSGOODMAN/cn=Address Lists Container/cn=Offline Address Lists/cn=Default Offline Address List's properties's replication tab.

Make sure your new server name is added as replica.

I think im going to reinstal this box over the weekend.  There are other AD issues that keep poping up it may not be fixable.

eatmeimadanishCommented:
You should always report AD issues with your Exchange problem in the start.  Sometimes if AD is not replicating properly can cause inconsistancies and corruption.  This could be fixed through a completely different method, but you need to supply all information.  Like event logs and types of issues.

flyguybobCommented:
If AD is not replicating properly there will be inconsistantices...most definitely.
What does DCDiag report?
