Outlook 2007 one user the name cannot be matched to a name in the address list

We upgraded a user to a new PC (win 7 pro x64) today and we cannot get his Outlook (Office 2007 x32) set up.
He is not autodiscovered
We get the "the name cannot be matched to a name in the address list" error
If I just search for B (his name is Bill) all the other users with a B in their name show up.
If I preview the GAL on the server he is in there
OWA and his iPhone work just fine
I tested on other PCs and have the same result as above
The server is SBS2003

I am at a loss, any help would be appreciated.

Sorry I forgot to include that in my original post but I have been down that road and that trick did not work.

Do you have the same problem from Outlook Web Access also?  I am thinking it might be an offline address book issue.

Verify whether you have checked automatically update email address based on email address policy.

This will update the email address as per policy and will help to update the email address in OAB if any errors.

If that box already checked, then disable and re-enable it...

Interesting...

As a test if you try to setup this user's Outlook on another workstation, does it work?

If so, I would check the name resolution settings, also was the user's old workstation Windows XP or 7?

Under the Network Properties -> Advanced Setting -> Make sure the LAN (Wired) Settings are listed on top

I found the issue.....He did not have many of the default security settings in ADSI.
I went to do an LDAP search and could not find him at all, dug into ADSI and found the issue after comparing his user to another, reset the default settings and surprise surprise he showed up in the LDAP search and Outlook found him without issue.

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.
