Go to Tools, Email Accounts, View or Change Existing Email Accounts and see what account is set as the default (it will have the word default in ()'s).

If your user goes through a firewall, make sure that the Outlook client option "My SMTP server requires authentication" is checked.

This is found under Tools > Services (or Accounts) > (his mail account) Properties > Servers tab.
