exchange 2010 cannot create new mailbox, existing users arent displayed

hi all, as in my screen below

i used move request to move mailboxes from 2003 to 2010 across forests

when i search for my existing users to add a mailbox

i get the old forest name with a dollar sign with the organisational unit as my new domain/users

i opened ADUC and all the users are there

how come exchange cant find them and is giving my old domain instead?

how do i test to see if there is any 2003 reminants on the 2010 server

there shouldnt be any but there is, the only thing i did was move-request, there was no other contact between the servers

any help? it still happens now after a week and a bit of replication

how can i remove all reminants of the old domain for the exchange and active directory servers, or where can i search for reminants?

i had a forest trust set up which i didn tknow about, i removed the forest trust and the old domain is now gone, and i couldnt add new users becuase they all ready had mailboxes... DUH!
