Outlook error 0x80040115 - can recieve but not send

I have one client running Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003. He receives email fine but can't send. We get the error
"Task 'Microsoft Exchange Server - Sending' reported error (0x80040115) : 'The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable.  Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action.'"

the computer is online and Outlook says it is connected. I created a new profile and I have the same problem. It also does not work when I open Outlook in safe mode.

I configured Outlook to use a proxy server and to use it for fast and slow connections. Sometimes this forces a username and password dialog box to come up. When that happens we can enter the information and it works for a short time.

I also installed Office SP3.

There are no errors in server or workstation event logs.

Is this a LAN connection (MAPI) or Outlook RPC Over HTTP?

I was a default Exchange configuration until I added the proxy settings. Now it is RPC over HTTP

Why do you want to use RPC Over HTTP inside LAN? Is any of your client successfully using RPC Over HTTP?

I only configured rpc to troubleshot this issue. This seems to help but it is still hit or miss. This is the only computer having this problem

Changing the way emails are accessed won't correct the original problem. Does the problem follow the user to a different PC? If so, then its down to the PC or user profile.
