Need help to reassociate Exchange account properties to the Active Directory User properties.

Migrating Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003, Cross server with same Administration group, in the same domain. I have two users that is seems during the move process their email account information seems to have been removed from the Active Directory user properties, but the users can still access there email perfectly. Is there a way to reassociate the exchange account properties to the Active Directory user properties. I have tried the exchange cleanup tool, in an attempt to fix it that way but I do not receive the red x through the mailbox so I can reassign it.

What options are you receiving in exchange tasks??
You could exmerge/pst their mailboxes and then delete their mailboxes >> recreate them >> drop the mail back in??

For the exchange tasks in System Manager, I get move/delete mailbox, configure exchange feature, and associate with external account.

AD users and computers exchange tasks for the user is: create mailbox, establish email address, remove exchange attributes. (which gives you a you really don't want to do this box). I'm starting ot thin k I should, but I have to check to see if the mailboxes are being backuped by Backup exec.

Their mailboxes must exist somewhere on the system, run the following command and this should produce a text file which you can then go to edit >> find >> and search for the users names.  Once you have located the users mailboxes post back

ldifde -f dump.ldf -l proxyaddresses

I fixed this myself. I removed the Exchange attributes in AD users and computers, and then deleted the user account. Next I ran the clean up wizard in Exchange 2003 systems manager, and got the red x on the email account. Then I recreated the user account, and then went to system manager and reconnected the email to the user acocunt. That fixed the issue.
