Global Contact Issue After 2003 to 2010 Exchange Migration

We upgraded from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. All users and mailboxes were migrated, but 1 mailbox needed to be recreated, as it never sync'd. The mailbox was recreated but the AD user was not recreated. The issue we are having is that when staff try to send an e-mail to this mailbox (by selecting it in their global contact list, not from cached) they get a bounce back. I believe they are getting this bounce back because the global contact for this mailbox is pointing to the old mailbox. The mailbox can still receive email if you type in the full address, but not if you select the global contact.

Any suggestions?

Outlook with cache mode use the legacyexchangedn value for sending an email. As you recreated the mailbox, that value is now changed. To fix it, just add X500 custom address and all the old legacyexchangedn value you are getting in the bounced back message.  Let me know, if that doesn't resolves your issue.

In my case, due to our upgrade to Exchange 2007, the user’s legacyExchangeDN value had changed from this on the old mailbox (which had been created prior to the Exchange 2007 upgrade):

/o=Example/ou=USA/cn=Recipients/cn=juser

To this on the new mailbox:

/o=Example/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=juser
"

On all of my mailboxes, they already have an x.400 address of:
"
 C=us;A= ;P=Example;O=Exchange;S=LastName;G=FirstName;
"

^ This seems to be what the article found to put in for the x.500 address. I tried that and did not have success. When I ran Exchange Management Shell to find the current X.500 address of this user, i got this, which is exactly what the article states:

"
/o=Example/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=:FirstName
"

I am trying to get a hex editor and go through that part of the article to double check the old X.500 address. The Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Editor seemed to need a lot of additional setup for it to work correctly.

Okay I added that, and still received a bounce back. Is there a specific amount of time needed to let the change populate?

Here is the bounce back:

So the X500 you need to add based on the above is:
/O=Example/OU=First administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=FLastName
