Hello,

Yes, you should have exported the legacyExchangeDNs from the contacts and added them as X500 addresses on the new mailboxes.

See my article here for more info:

If your forest functional level is at 2008 R2 or above, you can enable the AD recycling bin (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd392261%28v=ws.10%29.aspx), otherwise, you would need to perform an authoritative restore of AD to get the objects back.
