Exchange 2010 Activesync Foldersync error 403 for specific user

This started out attempting to set up a new iPad for a particular user. When adding the account now mail would come across so I went to the exchange connectivity analyzer and tested Activesync and checked the sync inbox checkbox. This failed with the error 403. The user is not a member of a privileged group, and I have checked to make sure he has the "inherit permissions" checkbox checked under his account security settings.

Here is the output from the connectivity test
Attempting the FolderSync command on the Exchange ActiveSync session.
 	The test of the FolderSync command failed.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Standard first test - move the user to another database. That will often clear problems.
Has the user ever been a member of a protected group? Have you checked for the Admin property on the user in ADSIEDIT/Attribute editor of ADUC?

Just moved the user to another DB, and verified the all admin attributes in adsiedit were "not set". I reran the test with the same error 403 result.
