I am wondering what events this coincides with, how many Exchange administrators you have that may make changes and other things like your change control procedures. Somone may have disabled some of the mailbox access methods or even changed mailbox perms so you could compare the mailbox permissions to another mailbox that is not having issues?

get-mailboxpermission -id <username> | fl

note with username you can replace part of the name with * i.e. johan.strange could be joh*

also using get-casmailbox -id <username> | fl will show what components this mailbox has rights to i.e. owaenabled , mapienabled etc will be either true or false.

This was precisely what I was looking for, just was a little late...

After I looked up the mailbox permission, I noticed he was in a group that had deny mailbox permission, how it got there was beyond me...
