Sounds like problems in the cache:

Here you go:

Have you tried deleting the cache (ost) when you turn off cached mode and letting it re-create when you turn the cache back on? Are there any sync errors logged within the users inbox?

In case if the above solutions does not work then it might be related to some corrupted settings in the Outlook profile. you can try to create a new profile to test the issue.

Hope this helps.

On the server side make sure you server Primary DNS is pointing correctly

Also run the following command on the PC and server

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

restart the DNS server service and Netlogon service

This issue may occur if the client is in Outlook Cached mode and there is
no Offline Address Book on the client or the connection to Exchange server
or Global Catalog server is lost or unstable.

To view active server connections on Outlook 2007 client:

1.      On the client computer, move the mouse pointer over the Microsoft Office
Outlook icon in the notification area that is located at the lower right of
the desktop.
2.      Press the CTRL key, and then right-click this icon.
3.      Click Connection Status.
4.      Please check if the Mail server(your Exchange server) and Directory
server(your Global Catalog server) are connected with status "Established".

Please make sure you Outlook 2007 is using Online Mode not Cached mode.
Also, the client can resolve both GC server and Exchange server via  IP and
NetBIOS name.
