What version of Exchange are you using?
When he is entering his appointments - what device is he using?  PC with Outlook, OWA, iPad or the iPhone.
If Outlook - sounds like his Offline file is not syncing properly - just delete it and re-create it (close Outlook first - then delete the .OST file - then open up Outlook and wait for the file to be regerated completely).

If the event is added to Outlook and doesn't make it to OWA, then the problem lies between Outlook and the server, so please blow away the .OST file and re-generate it, then create another appointment and make sure it appears in OWA.
If the appointment makes it to OWA, then it should appear on the iPad & iPhone. If not in OWA (directly on the server), you won't ever see it on the iPad or iPhone.

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

Hey,
I didn't work!

An example from the future – calendar for tomorrow: 11/11
Outlook application calendar has all meetings
OWA is missing 9:30 am meeting (a recurring meeting that was changed for this instance)
iPad/iPhone is missing 9:30 am meeting (a recurring meeting that was changed for this instance) and 4:30 pm meeting (that was tentatively accepted)

In that case - plan B is to dismount the mailstore and repair it!
You need to run:
eseutil /p
eseutil /d
isinteg -s servername -fix -tests alltests
If you are not familiar with how to do this, please let me know and I will give you more specific steps.
isinteg needs to be run as many times as it takes to see 0 errors and 0 fixes in the last output line on the screen.
eseutil takes about 1 hour to process 4-6 Gb of mailstore, so the larer the mailstore - the longer it will be offline!
