Can't removed orphaned Distributional List in GAL, Using Exchange 2003 - Object no longer in AD

A mail enabled Distribution List was deleted in Active Directory, but still appears in the Global Address List. It's been about a week now and it still won't disappear. Typically our process is to remove the Exchange Attributes, but the admin accidently deleted the AD object. I've combed through forums and can't find anything similar. I know it's not a replication issue because I've created test DL's that appear instantly in the GAL, and then disappear after I remove the Exchange Attribute. I even tried to create a DL using the same name, and all that did was create two objects in the GAL (the 2nd one also disappeared after I deleted the Exchange attribute). I was trying to figure out if it's possible using ADSIedit, but have hit a brick wall.

Please Help!

Personally would look to restore the deleted object and then remove the mail attributes correctly :-


Or maybe an authoritative restore of the object ?
