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.

You could purge the names cache for the affected users. You can delete specific entries of the whole cache. Here are the instructions:
