This originated with the user saying he was unable to get mail on his phone using ActiveSync.  I tried adding his account to my phone and the account added,  but no mail items pulled down.  I tried this on several other phones with similar results.  On a hunch, I logged in as the user on one of our Windows 7 domain workstations and opened his mailbox using Outlook 2010.  Except for the user's folder structure under Inbox, nothing came down automatically.  Even hitting Send/Receive all folders produced nothing.  But when I hit Update Folder under Send/Receive, the items pertaining to the folder pulled down just fine.

I can send from the account, but I only receive items when I click Update Folder.  I don't see anything out of the ordinary in the Exchange console pertaining to the user mailbox.

The Outlook client is connecting with an Exchange account right and not IMAP or another protocol is it?

That's correct.  Exchange 2007.

spoke with Microsoft Support.  The issue pertained to an individual item in the user's mailbox which was corrupting the ActiveSync connection.  We moved the contents of his mailbox to a .pst file which we then attached to his Outlook client.  After that we could establish ActiveSync connectivity normally.

After speaking with Microsoft Support, we did some considerable troubleshooting, eventually arriving at this resolution.
