Outlook cannot connect to mailbox

Environment: SBS 2003 Exchange 2003 -All SP installed
When setting a new PC for a user outlook 2007 responds:
"The name cannot be matched to a name on the address list"
although the user can receive and send email via his cell phone and Outlook Web access
In OWA he can see all his emails but the contacts do not show up
He does show up in AD and Exchange system manager as he should
I need to at least get to open and extract a pst file out of it

Does this happen for any other users? Have you tried this on another computer? Created a new Outlook profile? Used non-cached mode for Outlook? Start Outlook in safemode (outlook.exe /safe)?

Happens on several computers with different versions of Outlook.
Have tried your suggestions, still cannot find the name in the list

Have you made sure that this user is not hidden from the Global Address List?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You are right - he does not show up - How do I change that ?

Find the mailbox and open the properties and make sure that "Hide from address book" is unchecked. When the mailbox is hidden from the GAL the user will still be able to send and receive mail. Other users will not be able to look this person up in the GAL.
