single exchange mailbox cannot not recieve mail all of a sudden

Hi All,

At one of our other sites we have come into a strange problem. Basically one of our users cannot receive any email (internal or external). He can send email fine and everyone else on the some network can send and receive fine but all of a sudden he cant. Up until yesterday afternoon he could do everything fine and no all of a sudden no received mail.

Please Help!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Recreate his Outlook profile.  If that doesn't work, export his mail, delete and recreate his mailbox in Exchange and import his mail.

That seems pretty drastic. I don't undersatnd whats going on. It's like his pop3 connector has stopped working. The emails are just sitting there on the external mail server waiting to be picked up?

Since it is only one user, recreating an outlook profile takes about a minute.  If you have to use the Exchange method, it is dependent on mailbox size, but it usually takes about 10 minutes for a 20Gb mailbox.  Since it is 1 user, it has to be one of the two, probably the first.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Fair enough and sorry for questioning you. Would you be able to tell me how to do both things you said as I never have before. Thank you

Is your client running Outlook?
       Control Panel ->Mail->Delete existing profile
        Run Outlook to recreate profile.

What version of SBS?
       Start Outlook, File->Export to PST
       Run Active Directory Users & Computers-> Right-click on user->Remove Mailbox-Exit
       Run Active Directory Users & Computers-> Right-click on user->Add Mailbox-Exit
       Start Outlook, File->Import from PST
     2008 or above mailbox management is done through Exchange Management Console.
