Outlook/OWA error after connecting mailbox to user account

We accidentally deleted the OU with all user accounts.

We were able to reanimate the account.

We ran clean-mailbox and displayed the tombstoned mailboxes.

We connected the tombstoned mailboxes to the reanimated accounts (which required reapplying attributes [memberships, etc.]).

But now when we try to log the user in to either Outlook or OWA we get an error.  Desktop and My Docs show up fine - it's just Outlook.  I suspect that I have to wait for AD replication, but can't I force this somehow?

if you reconnected the accounts already stopping the information store is the quickest way

have you tried to create a new outlook profile? the legacyexchangedn value may not be the same as the original which would break the profile.

same result.
It definitely seems like it's waiting for the AD to replciate.  Replication just occured and the 50% of accounts that we've reconnected are now working properly.
The other 50% will have to wait the 2 hrs it took for replication or I can force a replication - if I knew how.
