How many DL's you need to fix? If no too many, just do it manually.
The easiest way would be to create a .csv file containing two columns entitled Primary and Secondary.  List the PrimarySmtpAddress under the Primary column and the associated email address in the Secondary column.  Save the .csv file to your desktop as groups.csv and then run this script from EMS:

Import-Csv "$env:USERPROFILE\Desktop\groups.csv" | ForEach-Object {
  Set-DistributionGroup $_.primary -EmailAddresses @{remove="$_.secondary"} -EmailAddressPolicyEnabled $false

Open in new window

It would be wise to start with just one Distribution Group in the .csv file to gauge results and adjust as needed prior to running the entire batch.
The first article helped me for my question..
