Default Bes 5 - Wrong messaging server when adding users

Please Login to Remove!

I am moving users from a Bes 4.1.6 box that is attached to EX03 to a Bes5 box that is attached to a EX07 server. I remove the user from the old Bes, migrate the mailbox from 03 to 07, open outlook and test a send / receive to make sure the messaging is going through, and then attempt to add the user to the Bes5 box, but it keeps pulling up the old mail server.

I've bounced all the services, I've restart the box all together, I've checked replication on the GCs / DCs and that happens within seconds of moving the server (obviously because outlook finds it's way to the new EX server) But it's like the Bes - just takes it's lonesome time - and after about 2hrs or so of me adding / deleting / adding / deleting / adding / deleling, and checking the users messaging server it finally bounces over to the correct one and I can do an enterprise activation.

Problem is I'm in a pinch right now, and I need this to happen ASAP, I have sales people in here for just the remainder of the day and I need to move them all over to the new server.
