Office365 migration error on legacyexchangedn value

I am performing a cutover migration to Office365 from my Exchange 2003 server and one use has failed with the message: Failed to update one of the recipient properties. Couldn't find object "/o=First Organization/ou=first administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=lmahony". Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object.

The username is: aogara and not lmahony so this seems to be the issue.  I'm assuming the account was renamed at some point.

I have checked all the Exchange attributes and I have run adsiedit and checked the value for exchangelegacyDN but this is showing as: /o=First Organization/ou=first administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=aogara which should be correct.

Is there something else I need to check, like I said all the values in ADUC look ok.

Any other suggestions?  If I remove the Exchange attributes and add them again through AD will it mess up the mailbox or is this safe to do?

I guess the old account was renamed or a copy of an old account was made and a new one created

Add this as X500
/o=First Organization/ou=first administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=lmahony

Or simply delete the Object and Mailbox after taking proper AD and Mailbox PST backup and create a new one

I can't add an X500, I only have the option for X400 which is already there and looks correct.

It's Exchange 2003 (not sure if this supports X500 or not).

I'd rather not delete and re-create the account if possible, would probably be easier to do an IMAP migration of this one account but there must be an easier way though?

Just Googled that and discovered how to add an X500 address (as a custom address).

One question, the username is actually 'aogara' so should the X500 address not be:

/o=First Organization/ou=first administrative group/cn=Recipients/cn=aogara

?????

No the reason we dont want /cn=aogara as if thats what it needed it could have picked up from the LegacyExchangeDN and not ask the error is the data we use and create a X500 :)
