Cannot reply or forward email in Outlook 2010

Suddenly my office 2003 was not working.  Word 2003 would error when you exit Outlook 2003 and would send a report and then try to restart.  I went and uninstalled Office 2003 and reinstalled it and still had the same problem.  I bought a utility called Best Removal Tool and tried to remove it and reinstall and I still had the same problem.  I finally decided it was a good time to upgrade to Office 2010 so I installed it.  I did not remove the profile for Outlook 2003 so when I started up Outlook 2010 it did not ask for settings and read the old profile.  Everything came up but suddenly I was not able to reply or forward messages in Outlook 2010.  I read some knowledge bases about this problem and I was told to delete the old profile and recreate one which I did and I still have the same problem.  We are connecting to an Exchange Server 2003.  Investigating it I found out that it was only up to SP1.  I patched the server to SP2 hoping that would fix the problem with Outlook 2010.  It did not.  I recreated the profile again hoping that with the new SP in place everything would be okay.  I am still having the problem.  Any ideas?

Start over, uninstall office 2010, ensure all the folders and registry entries have been removed, then reset/delete your current local profile, once deleted log back in to create yourself a new profile, install Office 2010, setup the Outlook mail profile and then ensure you install all Windows Updates.

Also I'm assuming your machine is on a domain? What's the OS?

I agree with Roshan. Sounds like you need to do a clean removal and even after an uninstall/reinstall something is lingering on your system.

See if the guidelines in this forum thread helps.

I did start over.  I deleted the profile and uninstalled office 2010 and the reinstalled office 2010 and recreated the profile.  It is on a workstation running XP Pro and it is connected to SBS 2003 which has bee completely patched.

I just completely started over with a new drive and installed Windows 7 and Office 2010.  I setup his profile and I still cannot reply or forward email without it immediately coming back undeliverable.

On top of everything it works in Outlook Web Access.  That tends to make me think there is nothing wrong with his account on the server.

I really cannot do that only because I am not in front of the machine.  Unfortunately the message is very generic and says nothing except that it was sent back immediately to the system administrator with no error code and a message unknown.  No real clues

  This message could not be sent. Try sending the message again later, or contact your network administrator. Unknown Error. Error is [0x80040900-0x80040900-0x0003ee].
