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)

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.
