Exchange caches most of the settings and will take couple of hours to "pickup" the changes. Either wait for 2 hours or restart the info store service.

It could be a problem with the recipient update service not reflecting the enabled status.  You could try a rebuild on it and see if that helps.

Can you check that the user has email address stamped.
Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
