Old contacts are receiving/replaced with Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=someone

I have now migrated from Exchange 2010 to exchange 2013. In doing so I  deleted several outside email contacts.
Now when they reply to an email from one of these contacts it gets replaced with this:
:/o=ABC/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=someone

However, when they forward the message and type in the email it works. It seems only to happen when they reply back to the contact.
I did have them clear out there outlook cache with that contact but it still happens.

How can I prevent this from happening?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There has to be still a trace of the contacts somewhere in Exchange.
If you look at the clients - do they show in the OAB?
Did you recreate the OAB on Exchange 2013? Is the correct OAB set on the databases?

Does the same thing happen on OWA?

I did see an OAB out there listed as Default Offline address list (Ex2013) I selected that for all the databases. I
Is there a way to refresh this one?
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
That is why you need to test through OWA - as that doesn't use the OAB. If the problem occurs through OWA then you know it is a live information issue which saves chasing around OAB.

You can force OAB to update thus:

get-offlineaddressbook | update-offlineaddressbook
