Suggested contacts causing failed reply to all imported messages...

Hello All,
I recently did an SBS 2011 installation and setup exchange 2010 (as I have many times)... The customer had been using Google Apps as their mail provider... Since there were only 2 mailboxes that we needed to migrate, I decided to create a PST file from Outlook 2010 before moving to our Exchange Environment...

After I got Exchange all setup, we opened Outlook 2010 and imported the PST file...

Now when ever he replies to a message not received since the migration, he gets the below NDR...

I have cleared the Suggested Contacts Cache... I have deleted all the suggested contacts (emailed myself a copy in case I need to reenter them)... So right now he shows no suggested contacts in his list HOWEVER, they still show up when you start typing an address... I know these are stored in a hidden folder within exchange now, but how do I get rid of them..??? I'll be happy to type them all in from scratch at this point!! But I can't get rid of the old ones...
