Android Connection to Exchange 2003 Not Working

I manage a SBS 2003 box.  Many users connect to it using mobile devices like iPhone, WM6 and Android.  No one has any issues.  I have one user who has a Droid by Verizon phone who just can't receive her own email via her phone (she can send mail but no receive).  

* I tried my own mailbox on her Android phone and she can see everything in the inbox and send mail, as me.  
* I tried her mailbox from my Android phone and I can see her mail and send mail as her.
* When I try her mailbox on her droid phone she cannot see her mail but she can send just fine.

I have to completely delete one Exchange account from an Android phone to recreate it (for the same or different user) so it's not like one accounts settings could be affecting another account.

It could have something to do with the SSL certificate. We had one that was self signed and it worked fine with Android 2.1. Then Verizon released the 2.2 update and we couldn't connect even though the check box that said allow all security certificates. We went ahead and got a valid SSL but I think they released a patch to fix the security settings.

Server has a valid certificate.  Also, the same phone works with any other mailbox on the system, just not the one belonging to the user who owns the phone.  Problem is specific to that particular phone and ONLY one particular mailbox.  It's driving me nuts.

A general solution for problems dealing with a specific user sometimes are resolved by disconnecting the mailbox and recreating the user in AD. Once recreated the users mailbox can be reattached.

Well.  I tried it one more time and it is working now.  The only thing I had the user do was to reduce the size of her mailbox which had gone over 1GB.  That was purely on instinct.  

Still, another user with 1.5GB mailbox receives mail on her Android phone just fine.  

It makes no sense.

I'm awarding some points to both participants since both were valid actions to take in such a situation.
