Deleting Distribution List and creating an email address of the same name  - Exchange 2003

We have had a distribution list since before I have been here called Marketing.  They want that to be a monitored email address.  I have deleted the distribution list but it has not come off the global address list so I am unable to create the new email address.  I have already rebuilt the Offline Address Book and downloaded it.  What do I need to do to force the old DL to get removed?

Thanks!

Ignore the OAB - that will have nothing to with this.
If you look at the address book live through ESM, Recipients, All Global Address lists, click on the Preview button, does the address show there?

The Marketing DL is gone.  However, when I try to create an email from my client it still shows up.

That simply means the offline address book is out of date or isn't updating correctly.
After rebuilding the OAB, do you get any errors in the event viewer?

Go to ESM->Recipients->Offline ADdress Book->Right Pane right click on OAB and click rebuild .
It will rebuild the OAB if there is any issue then you will be able to see those in Event Viewer.

I just didn't wait long enough for the Disribution List to come off.
