I am running exchange 2013. I am using outlook 2013 as well for the most part.
I am running win 2012 as my functional domain level.

I had a DL (donorrelations) that I needed the email address, so I deleted the DL, and then I took a mailbox and renamed it to the name of the DL.

Now when I send an email to donorrelations@domain.com it fails and comes back with the following info:
(how do I fix this?)

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

This is caused by your Autocomplete cache in outlook trying to reference the deleted object for the group instead of the new mailbox. You can fix this by either adding an X500 email address to the Mailbox that matches this string:
o=domain_ou=First+20Administrative+20Group_cn=Recipients_cn=donorrelations

Alternatively you can clear that entry in your Autocomplete cache by typing out the address and clicking the X button next to the entry that pops up when you do that.

I did that already, I deleted the autocomplete cache.

So the donorrelations@domain.com is already added to the account, I'm not sure what you mean by adding an x500 email address?

I am using outlook 2013 and I don't have an nk2 file.
I searched the entire PC and I do not have an nk2 file.
