Do you have Outlook Web Access also set up?
If so,  start there.
Send yourself a file, and if it doesn't appear in the local Outlook inbox, check your OWA account, and see if it is in that inbox.
That's an easy way to test if it's hitting the server, and then we can focus on debugging your local settings.

Check disk space, if server have sufficient disk space. Also, CPU usage.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

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

owa = Outlook web access.   If exchange was set up to be accessible from the outside internet, you would login to your email account from a web browser.

Does the file appear there, before it hits your local Outlook inbox?

I agree with the other post that advises to check the local hard drive space on the server.

if the machine is older, I'd keep those file attachment sizes to a minimum.

also, try an intermittent "Send / Receive" request from Outlook.
