Have you tried using both the DNS entry for the server and the direct IP address?

seems like you have an offline folder set on the laptop, have you given it time to syncronise the data with the server before taking the laptop offline? and trying to use outlook offline let alone VPN.
if the user has a rather large mailbox, check the folder size and see what the difference in size is to the server, possible that is hasnt syncronised all of the folders/emails yet.

ccns,

Yes I let it fully sync before connecting to the VPN.  I actually noticed the mailbox was was quite large and exported mail to .pst's

Can the client see the global catalog server over the VPN tunnel? Can you ping it and the Exchange server by name?
