"Reply To" intermittently is incorrect

Hi Experts!
I have an internal Exchange 2010 server, single domain, standard setup, AD environment, nothing really special.  Users are all on Outlook 2010.  

I have one user that just recently started getting reports that when people reply to his emails, they bounce back.  Checking into it, I was able to replicate (though no idea how/why this particular email manifested the issue, while others did not), and it appears that in the email header, his Reply-To shows his correct username, but instead of ..domain.com, it is ..domain.cim.

This happens both with internal emails as well as external.  

On Exchange, I verified his SMTP address is showing as .com.  

In outlook, I tried reselecting his account as the "reply to" address.  

What could be causing this?

Does he has some Signature added check the Hyperlink on that
If its very frequent ask him to work with OWA\Webmail for a day to narrow down the issue

He has a plain text signature.  Thanks, I'll have him try OWA, though it's actually not occurring very frequently.

More info:

This morning, he forwarded an email to me via Outlook that had the incorrect Reply-To in the header.  I just had him forward the same email to me again via OWA, there is no Reply-To in the header and hitting reply shows his correct account/email instead of the incorrect email.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

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

So the issue isnt happening via OWA\Webmail ?
If no then try setting a new Machine or Profile and lets monitor .... probably Outlook or Outlook profile issue

I think recreating the profile did the trick, haven't had issues since.  Thanks.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?
