Could be corrupt delegate cache.

try below;

1. go into account settings, verify that the cached exchange mode is OFF.

2. click Start-->Run-->Outlook.exe /safe

3. in Safe mode, go to delegates settings, and add anyone, then close outlook.

4. Reopen outlook, Start-->Run-->Outlook.exe /safe, remove all delegates

What is likely happening is the delegate was added in Active Directory, possibly with a previous version of Exchange or through some other means. If you use a tool like admodify or ADSIEdit and look up the user (Or if you have the Attributes tab available in ADUC, I believe you have to have a 2008 DC and set ADUC to allow advanced features to see that). The publicdelegates attribute has a list of users that supercedes the settings in outlook, and the problem user is probably listed there. Removing the user from that attribute should clear it in the mailbox. Another thing you can do is determine which users should be delegates and open the Exchange Management Shell and run this:

set-mailbox <user mailbox that has the delegate problem> -grantsendonbehalfto <list of users to allow delegation, separated by commas like this: user1,user2,user3>
