Please check connectivity to your exchange server from that client machine.
Open control panel and click on mail and check your mail settings.
If it doesn't works, delete mail account and create new one.
After Adding the new account, open mail settings again, go to more settings, select connections tab and configure Microsoft exchange proxy settings.

The issues you are facing in Outlook is due to Exchange Sever as you cannot open your folders, have a look on this article. May be it will resolve your problem to open the set of folder.

Create a new, test Windows User Account (Profile) and try Outlook in a new Windows Profile on the problem computer. If that works, then the Windows Profile is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Hi John, thanks new test profile loads properly.

So then the current Windows Profile on the problem computer is damaged. You need to back it up, delete it, and create a new profile.

I recreated the profile, still a problem on PC. Tried on different computer its the same problem, User on current system works.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
That indicates a problem with Exchange (can't load profile on multiple computers).

I am not sure why new profile on problem computer works, but take a look how you set up Outlook to see if there are any differences.
