I have had this on previous version of Outlook but I dont have Outlook 2010 to check.
In the profile under the directorys options - try removing the MAPI address book and then readding it again (in older version it was under Additional Address book, Outlook Address book)

Did not try the 2nd solution above as customer opted to uninstall and reinstall office completely which seems to have cured the issue. Extreme but worked.
