Exhange 2003 - Problems setting up a Mailbox for an individual user

I have recently setup an exchange 2003 enterprise server and I am experiencing problems setting up a mailbox for one existing user.

The server is a member domain, running server 2003 R2 with exchange 2003 Enterprise.
I have setup a handful of users who are using exchange fine, but today I have created a mailbox for an existing user; the  the wizard complete with no errors... But I can't log into the account.  There is no information in the e-mail addresses tab on AD.

I am now getting errors in the event viewer, ID 8270 and warning errors 8315

Error Message:
LDAP returned the error [32] Insufficient Rights when importing the transaction
dn: <GUID=DB61DD8ACEFE5947854E91503AA10058>
changetype: Modify

Warning message:
The service could not update the entry 'CN=USERNAME,OU=DOMAIN Local Users,DC=DOMAIN DC=DOMAIN,DC=CO,DC=UK' because inheritable permissions are not propagated to this object. The inheritable permissions may be disabled because the object belongs to a Windows 2000 administrative group or the inheritable permissions were disable explicitly by an administrator. DC=DOMAIN,DC=DOMAIN,DC=CO,DC=UK

The above errors are showing up approx every 10 minutes in the event viewer.

I have searched these and found information relating to recipient policy and recipient update service.  I have updated these but this hasn't done anything.
I have since created new users in AD and created mailboxes fine, i have also created accounts for existing users and these are working fine.  This seems to be isolated to this particular user.
We are running a single Exchange server environment; I have seen many articles relating to multiple exchange server problems.
On installing the server I ran Domain Prep, i mention this as i have seen articles saying run this, i have not tried running this yet, as im not sure what effect this could have on the existing users.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
