Try changing the email address in Exchange System Manager instead.
Right-click -> Properties -> Email Addresses.

I did change the email address of the Distribution List in Server Managment
and that was the trick. Thanks Lee!

Try dumping the entire directory out to an LDF file (LDIFDE -F OUTPUT.LDF)
and search through that file for the e-mail address you are trying to
create. Chances are it is already assigned to another object.

Wouldn't it be easier to use ADUC (for most people)?

Use "Find..." and select "Custom search". Select the "Advanced" tab
and put "proxyaddresses=smtp:sm...@smithwesson.com" into the edit box.
Make sure the "Entire directory" scope is selected.
