Hi everyone,

Are you on Exchange 2007 SP3? If not, then update to SP3 and we'll go from there...

Sounds like you have an out of date OAB so do:
Ensure your OAB has the E2K7 server as the OAB generating server and that the OAB has web distribution enabled then do:
EMS
Get-OfflineAddressBook | update-offlineAddressBook
Wait 15 minutes
Restart msexchangeFDS service on CAS server
Wait 5 minutes
Restart Outlook and see if it can download the OAB
