Have you run the Recipient Update Service in Exchange System Manager?

Suggest deleting that Contact and creating another one with the new address. Then go to Exchange System Manager > Recipients > Recipient Update Service > (Your Domain)...right-click it and choose "Update Now".

Yes, just create a new contact, do not edit the admin1 contact with the new addy and you will see immediate results.
