Exchange 2010 - Cross-forest mail contacts

How to convert  "Cross-forest mail contact" to "Mail Contact" in Exchange 2010? 

Go to attribute editor, delete msExchRecipientTypeDetails and msExchOriginatingForest attributes. Then change msExchRecipientDisplayType to 6

Attributes before changes:
msExchRecipientTypeDetails:32768
msExchOriginatingForest: example.com
msExchRecipientDisplayType: -2147482106


After editing we have only:
msExchRecipientDisplayType: 6

After such configuration Cross-forest mail contact will be shown in EMC as Mail Contact

Note: Don't think that it is best practice but as for me it works fine in test environment.
