Do you have cached mode turned on in the email account profile?

If so, turn it off and try to delete/reload the OAB.

If that does not work, run the Office Diagnostics.
If that does not work, it would be a [no-so] quick fix by recreating the email account.

Thanks!

I had this issue some time ago and the only way I could fix it was to create a new mail profile on the machine to replace the existing one.

Can you try to create the email profile temporarily on another user profile on that computer?

Thanks.

No Joy!!  The last thing that i can see that will have to be done is most probably reinstall win 7 but this is my very very last option

Yes.  That is true.. If the issues continue, a reload would be necessary.
