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.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
