Recipient Policy will update certain accounts, but not all after moving mailboxes

Due to corruption in an Exchange 2003 databases, I have moved a bunch of mailboxes from multiple databases to new databases. After moving many of the mailboxes I end up having the mailboxes in the new databases,and they are connected, but they leave behind a mailbox in the old database with a red X next to it (disconnected). The number of items is usually 0, but could be 1 or 2 and the size, even if the number of items is 0 can be more than 0 Kb. I cannot delete the disconnected mailbox from the old database unless I delete the mailbox on the new database, delete the old mailbox from the old database. Then I can reconnect the mailbox on the new database and things look ok, except for one thing... If I look at the properties of the AD account many of them no longer show an SMTP account. I tried to apply the recipient policy, but it is not working for these accounts. There seems to be some disconnect, but not sure what it is and what happened.

It's now a brand new database. I moved the mailboxes to a new database in a new storage group.

There is nothing in the event logs. What would I be looking for in the Exchange logs?

are they in the same group or there are multiple user groups?

There are multiple groups, but I have accounts that are updated and accounts that are not being updated in the same group.

I had already looked at this link and didn't find anything that helped. Was there a certain part you were thinking about? Thanks.

Have you tried to rebuild the recipient updae service?

Greg27Author Commented:
Yes, but I have 3 of them (they were configured by someone else) and don't know if I need all 3 and which one I should rebuild. Would only 1 be used?

I have kind of resolved this. After looking in ADSIEdit at the problem accounts and good accounts, I found the permissions were wrong for the problem accounts. When I was moving the mailboxes, somehow something must have changed permissions. My guess is that there was not enough permissions for RUS to push out the policy to these accounts after the email addresses were wiped out. I don't know specifically which permissions are required. Can anyone shed some light on that for people who may be looking at this posting?
