User is not authenticating to Exchange server 2003 after password change

When ever one of my users changes her password on Windows server 2003 network she cannot open Outlook without being prompted for a password. She tries both the old and the new password and neither one works. She can login to the OWA. I tried removing Exchange Attributes, run the Cleanup Agent and reconnect her mailbox, she still cannot authenticate to  the Exchange server. She tried to log in to a different workstation with the same results. We have 2 domain controllers and run Outlook in Citrix Presentation Server 4.5. She can run other programs in Citrix, like Word and Excel. It seems that the DC is not passing the new password on to the Exchange server. Any help would be appreciated.

Are thee any replication issues with your Domain Controllers?

Can you run DCDiag on both and repadmin /showrepl?

Can I run these 2 programs with users logged in? The second domain controller is for back up only.

yes they can be run with users logged on. Since windows 200 there is no backup domain controller, so both DC act as domain controller one may hold all the FSMO roles. Users will authenticate off of both.

More information on the user, I was checking my IDS program and it logs failed authentication, when the user logs on, I am getting an alert that her user name does not exist on the mail server. I checked her name on the mail server and it is on the server.

I restarted the Netlogon on the 2nd domain controller after reading this test. I have not run the other program, is it a program I need to download?

Is the user able to access Outlook without connecting to Citrix? That is login directly to the server and launch the exe instead of Citirx?

Please run netdom query fsmo at any of your servers and check on which domain controller all the fsmo roles are resided now. check the DNS configuration on client and check the A and ptr records of the user in DNS.
