Which server does it say the generation server is? (Org config /Mailbox /Offline Address book)

If you hold down the control key while right clicking the Outlook icon in the task bar and run the "Test Email Auto-Configuration" do the results show an error for the OAB?

You may need to rebuild the OAB in Exchange,

Take a read through this link (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_5064-9-Steps-to-end-OAB-nightmares.html).  It will help you force a rebuild of your OAB.  be patient with both the rebuild, and also forcing Outlook to update.  It may error our the first few time, even take a reboot to get it to update if it is stubborn.

Hi Stu29 the article is great but I ran into a snag.

When I run this command while rebuilding the OAB 'Get-OfflineAddressBook | Set-OfflineAddressBook -VirtualDirectories "<CASServerName>\oab (default web site)"' all I get at the EMC is >>
and it just sits there

You have to interpret the command after you verify where your virtual directories are in IIS.  Open IIS and check where your oab directory resides .. is it under the Default website or somewhere else

Example:
Set-OfflineAddressBook -VittualDirectories "Exchange01\OAB (Default Web Site)"

All the commands ran without errors but the OAB folder was not recreated, I have re-run all the commands 3 times without success.

OK .. try restarting the MS Exchange File Distribution service and the system attendant service.
Go in to ESM and right click on your OAB under Org config/Mailbox and select Update.  See if this works for you.

if not, try building another OAB to test with and see it that one will show up

Hi Stu29,
Update, the folder has finally re-generated and the OAB error on the OAB Properties page is gone, I will wait another 15 minutes and check Outlook and see if the problem has been resolved, thanks for you help with this issue.
