Mail Enabled Public Folders in Exchange 2010 stopped working

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I recently migrated from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.  I decomissioned my exchange 2003 server about a month ago.  Today after rebooting my exchange 2010 servers, mail enabled public folders stopped working.  I get the following kick back when I try to send an email to my mail enabled public folders:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

careers@domain.net (HumanResources@domain.net)
The e-mail system had a problem processing this message. Exchange will not try to redeliver this message for you.

Diagnostic information for administrators:

Generating server: CAS/HUB.domain.com

#554 5.6.0 STOREDRV.Deliver.Exception:ObjectNotFoundException; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message The Active Directory user wasn't found. ##rfc822;careers@domain.net

Original message headers:
