In my Outlook Address Book, I see some contacts that have a globe icon next to it. I cant find the contacts within Active Directory, Exchagne Server and wanted to know how to find and remove the contact.

I also searched on GG, and some of pepole said that they were custom recipients, i.e., their mailboxes were on some other system outside the Exchange organization...

I am not clear about that. So, I need to find Microsoft documents about this problem. But, I dont receive any right results.

If you got the similar issues, please give me an advice!

These contacts with globe are actually Contacts. Those without globe are AD users. All that's simple =) You can easily delete these contacts using Exchange Management Console or Powershell.
