From control panel ensure that Cached Mode is disabled, go in to the advanced tab under the Exchange server settings and ensure offline folders is disabled. Launch the mailbox and then go back in to control panel recreate the offline folder manually, and ensure that offline folder files is enabled, which will also re-enable cached mode.

Using offline mode on a laptop is ideal, because you would still be able to see old messages when working offline/away from the Exchange server.  It sounds to me what you are trying to do here is open Outlook on a number of different PCs, without having opened Outlook whilst connected to the server for it to be able to create the offline folders on that PC.  There seems little point in having this functionality, because if he moves to a new PC which he hasnt used in a while to let the offline folders update, then it would be out of date and therefore of little use!
