Problem with autodiscover but only for some users

Migrated to new exchange server 2016. Most users work fine. Some users i needed to manually recreate the email account since autodiscover would not work for them. I tested Autodiscover from outlook on those users and this is what I get:
local autodiscover failed 0x8004010f

The only thing I could find was relating to some delegate flag or a registry that needs to be deleted. I checked and these users do not have that delegate flag and the registry key does not exist.

Check and make sure they are pulling from the correct DNS server. Also try ipconfig /flushdns.

Also make sure your autodiscover is correctly set on the DNS server.

Todd - Those registry keys do not exist on that computer.

Dan - I tried to flush dns but no luck.

I think it may be a profile issue. On that computer I logged in as a different user and it worked fine (To clarify, user A is having the issue. I logged in as user B on that same computer but added Users A email account without any issues). What in someone's profile would cause autodiscover to not work ?
