Have you re-created your Outlook profiles and have you completely removed the old Exchange Server that you migrated from or is it still hanging about somewhere?

for sometime the old server was up so the autodiscovery change the settings. Now the server removed.

Has it been removed completely or just switched off?
Did you uninstall Exchange from the old server completely before switching it off?
Have you re-created your outlook profiles?  Does autodiscover work internally?

Okay - thanks for the extra bit!  I had the same sort of fun migrating to my 2010 server.
Can you use ADSIEDIT.msc and navigate to an affected User Account (under Default Naming Context).
When you get to the user account, please right-click on the account and choose properties.  Then click on the Security tab and then on the Advanced button.  Do you have Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent selected?
If not, please select it and then close and then test again.
