Under users in Server management console have a look at your user in question under email addresses.
See if the wizard create the external (SMTP) email address. (Not the .local address)
If not create a new SMTP email address for that user. Compare it to another user to guide you.
If you can't create the SMTP address it could be it already exists in the AD.
You need to delete it there first.

Are you sure that user hasn't reached their email quota. This would stop them from sending.
Try making his quota bigger.
Also have a good look in the user properties to see if he is allowed to send.
