You can use two ways to correct the issue :

1. Update-Recipient : Running the update-recipient cmdlet against an affected user should correct the issue. The logic for update-recipient has been updated to address the homeMTA scenarios. (update-recipient jsmith)

2. Move Mailbox : If you coincidentally plan on moving the affected mailboxes, this should correct the issue as well since update-recipient is automatically included at the end of move mailbox.

Sorry, the 2003 server is completely decommissioned and removed from the network. All mailboxes are on exchange 2010.

I think all users are effected by this so can I run this update-recipient against the mailbox instead of the user? (Over 100 users)

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ok, just found another error.

Process w3wp.exe () (PID=14628). Object [CN=SystemMailbox{30D0272D-6F88-4E88-BF8C-E8F21644195C},CN=Microsoft Exchange System Objects,DC=tds,DC=local]. Property [HomeMTA] is set to value [tds.local/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Microsoft MTA
DEL:34365cde-4131-4c1f-b3b7-3576999d2fb9], it is pointing to the Deleted Objects container in Active Directory. This property should be fixed as soon as possible.

using the EBPA i was able to find the exact cause of these issues and resolve.
I cannot remember exactly everthing i went through but was all to do with ADSI Edit and a unclean decomssion of the old exchange 2003 server.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
