Outlook 2007 Permissions issue

I just had to rebuild our Exchange 2003 (on Win2k3r2) server recently, and now a couple existing users are having issues.  I created a new temporary user, and it is affected as well.

When operating in cached mode both receive the error: "Cannot open your default email folders. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object.  See the folder contact or your system administrator."
In non-cached mode, all folders public & private are accessible, and there are no errors when sending/receiving mail or calendar items.

I've tried solutions listed in
https://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_2003_Active_Directory/Q_22679190.html 
and
http://www.activedir.org/Articles/tabid/54/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/25/Outlook-2007-Permissions-Issue.aspx
but the problem persists.
I've also compared the SELF permissions on the advanced mailbox properties, and everything matches up.

All other users are using Outlook 2007 in cached mode.
