After upgrade from Exchange 2003 to 2007 version, can't  send emails to newly created distribution groups from anywhere, from inside too.

Old server is uninstalled, but old administrative group still exists.

After checking, find out that all distribution group, that was transfered from old Exchange, have value in legacyExchangeDN. For example - /o=xxxxxI/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=KAD. But for these, whose I created after migration, there isn't any value.
What exactly should I try?

For all distribution groups are defined x400 address in form like - C=US;A= ;P=xxxx;O=Exchange;S=PDSpec; It's the same for old and for new ones. x500 address are't defined anywhere.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

How have you created the new distribution groups?  Through AD, EMC or EMS?

Can you launch adsiedit.msc

Connect to "Configuration", expand ”CN=Services”->”CN=Microsoft Exchange”->”CN=OrganizationName”->”CN=System Policies”

In the middle-pane, go to “Properties” of “CN=Mail Enable Recipient” entry

In the “Attribute Editor” tab, open the “purportedSearch” attribute, and verify the value exactly same as below:

(|(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(mailnickname=*)(targetAddress=*))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=contact)(mailnickname=*)(targetAddress=*))(&(objectCategory=group)(mailnickname=*))(&(objectCategory=publicFolder)(mailnickname=*)))

Use the same procedure to verify the “purportedSearch” attribute of “CN=Mailbox Enable User” entry

(|(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(mailnickname=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(mailnickname=*)(homeMdb=*))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(mailnickname=*)(homeMta=*)))

Create a new distribution list, try emailing and post back your results.
