Scenario:
Exchange 2003 / Windows 2003 server.
Client Windows XP Professional  SP2.
Application: Microsoft Outlook 2003

Kwisdom her account was deleted from AD users by mistake and was recreated using the same account name.  She has been using her email before and getting emails etc.  Now that her account has been recreated she is getting error 0x80040107 saying that the item could not be opened.  
She was using an NT machine with Outlook 2002 before.  Now she has a new machine with Windows XP Professional and outlook 2003.  This is what she gets every time she hits the send and receive icon to refresh her inbox:

10:51:25 Synchronizer Version 11.0.5604
10:51:25 Synchronizing Mailbox 'Kelly Wisdom'
10:51:25 Synchronizing Hierarchy
10:51:25 Terminated in error
10:51:25              [80040107-30090701-0-610]
10:51:25              Microsoft Office Outlook Offline Folders
10:51:25              For more information on this failure, click the URL below:

10:51:25 Microsoft Exchange offline address book
10:51:25 Download successful

She is able to send emails but cannot receive.  She is able to use Web Outlook without any problems (Receives and sends emails).  I have tried using Outlook 2003 on a different machine logging as kwisdom but no luck.  I have set up her profile from control panel/email but still get the same message.  Can somebody tell me what I can do to fix this problem?  She is the only one having this problem and everything started when her account was recreated in AD.

That's because even though the Account name is the same, her SID isn't.

Open Exchange System Manager and find her mailbox.
Right-click it and select Reconnect.
Select her new account.

She should now be able to use her mail.

Can you please tell me how to get there?  I have ESM open but cannot find a way to get to her inbox unless I use AD users and computers.

Thank you!

Expand Administrative Groups
Expand First Administrative Group
Expand Servers (you may simply have Servers as a root folder, in this case start there)
Expand your Servername
Expand First Storage Group
Expand Mailbox Store
Select Mailboxes.

Find the user on the right side.
Right-click the mailbox for this user and select Reconnect.
Browse or type in the account.
OK your way out.

Netman66 I finally was able to fix my issue.  I deleted her username in ESM and recreated her account in AD all over again.  I also renamed her computer just in case.  I guess what I needed was to Remove Exchange Attributes.
SOmehow it got fixed and thanks to your suggestions.

Case closed.

Thank you very much for your great help!
