try telnet exchange from users machine & see if it connects, that will help you to figure out may be it could be a issue with the network.

What exchange version you are on? how big is the OST?

I did not try owa and since the problem cleared with an Outlook restart I cannot.  But it was showing "Connected to MS Exchange" so it's not because it was out of connection and even if it was, theres no way the email would vanish just because he is "offline"...
I will recreate its ost files just in case it a corruption.

ideally in that case it should have saved the item in drafts. Not sure whats happening. May be it was a freeze condition where the outlook said connected but actually on the background it was not.
