ADUC, select the users properties and select the Exchange Advanced Tab.  See if the user has the correct permissions.

Exchange Advanced Tab
Simple display name is only used for backwards compatibility, for example, if you have NT 4.0, or systems that restrict the number of letters in the Alias.

from Exchange Address Lists has a variety of uses, for example, accounts that are really rooms, users who do not want to be in the address book, special Distribution Lists.

Hiding the object does not stop those who know, or can guess the email address, from posting messages to this user.

Mailbox Rights Here is where you can adjusted permissions for one user to 'Send On Behalf' of another user, for example, Boss / Secretary relationships.

 Remember to display the Advanced Features by clicking on the View menu in Active Directory Users and Computers.

Rather than continuing, I might just create another profile to see if that clears it up.

Remove the e-mail acount from outlook and re setup it, but first you should  take a full backup of your e-mails !

Is the Exchange server in a domain, is the user logged in the domain, does he have domain user account ?

It was the group SELF under advanced exchange properties who did not have the correct permission. Thanks for your help.
