Delegate access and Mailbox permissions are held in your profile settings on the Exchange Server, Not on the local machine

Need to connect your PC back to the Network and re-check the delegate permissions for that user.
Might even remove the person as a Delegate on your Inbox
Close Outlook, Re-Open Outlook
GO back to Delegates and Re-Add that Person as a Delegate with Reviewer Rights on your inbox.
Save Apply OK

Once done have the person check to see that they can view your inbox.

Once they can confirm this, you may then disconnect your pc from the network again

All should be okay then

Keep in mind this person should only be opening your Inbox Via
File>Open>Other Users Folder

If they have added you mailbox any other way, permissions may be different.

Also check that this person is actually logged onto their PC as them or the user you have given this permission to.

If you gave permission to Jon Doe to View your inbox and Jon Does goes to Joe Smiths PC and trys to view your inbox via Joes Outlook Profile, he will not be able to.
