The user's 2010 Outlook stopped connecting to the server while on the LAN.
After backing up the ost file as a pst and removing it and recreating the profile and uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook, I finally tried creating a profile for myself and everything worked fine. I still get the following error when trying to create the user's profile.

Cannot open your default e-mail folders. You must connect to Microsoft Exchange with the current profile before you can synchronize your folders with your Outlook data file (.ost).

Having created a working profile, I was able to CTRL-Rightclick on the Outlook icon in the system tray and test the e-mail configuration. When using my credentials, all works as expected. Here is a screen shot of the successful autoconfig:

When I use Erika's credentials (that same as used successfully to login to the laptop on the domain), the autodiscover fails with a series of 0x800C8202, 0x800C8203, and 0x8004010F errors as shown below:

This "test E-mail AutoConfiguration" for Erika fails on the laptop and on the only other machine I tried it on. Both machines succeed for the "Robert" account and two others I tried. This is all internal on the LAN. Erika can access her email via OWA and ActiveSync without any issues.

Here are my autodiscover settings according to my Exchange management Shell:

Please help me fix it so Erika can use Outlook in the office.

I should also have noted that so far in trying to resolve this I restarted the MS Exchange RPC client, rebooted the server and added a "Maximum Allowed Sessions Per User" entry in the registry, per Microsoft Knowledgebase KB842022: Event ID 9646 is logged in the application event log of your Exchange Server when a client opens many MAPI sessions

Please try disconnect that mailbox and reconnect if this problem only for a single user.

Disconnect and reconnect had no effect.
I gave this laptop to another user
and setup a new laptop for the user with the problem.

Easier than fixing the issue.
