Outlook Tasks not showing in to do bar

Exchange 2010 sp1
Outlook 2007 sp3

One of my users has lost her task list in the to do bar. This happens every once in a while and usually running outlook.exe /resettodobar solves it. This time it does not.

When I log into another computer as this user the problem is there as well. We also have a terminal server and when I log in as that user and open Outlook it is missing there as well.

I can't find any info in google on this, all I get is the resettodobar. Any help is appreciated.

Did you do a migration recently from older Exchange version?
We had the same issue after migration with some accounts and we had to export the mailbox to PST and delete and recreate it

We did migrate from Exchange 2003 but that was a year and a half ago, this problem only appeared last week.

You can try use MFCMAPI to repair it but in most cases it didn't work out for me

1.      Use MFCMAPI to open the mailbox, navigated to “Root Container”

2.      Right-click on To Do Search folder, and then delete folder (Hard Deletion)
