Exchange 2010 Email Address linked with wrong profile

Last Modified: 2017-04-02

We have an issue with a new user taking over an email address.

User1 needs to have admin@domain.com and user2 needs to have user@domain.com

Under User1 in exchange console they have admin@domain.com and admin@domain.local
Under User2 in exchange console they have user@domain.com and user@domain.local

However, when internal emails are sent to admin@ they come up with User2's name in Outlook.
User2 used to have the address but it has been changed across this week.

From what I can see everything under Exchange looks fine. I have removed the effected address from AutoComplete on the client machine, restarted the Exchange Services and finally rebooted the server.

The Global address list still shows User2 to have admin@domain.local

Is there any where else other than where mentioned that the address list would pick up the domain.local from?
