Have the user log onto another computer and see if the issue follows him.

If the issues doesn't follow the user, backup the user's profile data, delete his Windows profile, recreate and then re-create the Outlook profile.

If that doesn't work run sfc /scannow to have the System File Checker repair missing or corrupted files.  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

If that doesn't work, you may have to wipe and reinstall the workstation.

Or you may want to run the sfc /scannow first.

Maybe it's time to upgrade that user's version of Office?

FYI... You have less than a year but come 10 October 2017, Office 2007 will no longer be supported.  Start planning now.

Or consider Office 365.  It's something like $10 per month per user.

And you will always be running the latest version.  Not really part of this topic, but food for thought.

Don't kill yourself.  It's not your responsibility to convince them.  That is Microsoft's job.

If your management is concerned about security, etc. Microsoft is most likely the world's most regulated company.  And I can almost guarantee they are more secure and careful with data than any single employee you could hire.  Any company that can figuratively and publically "flip the bird" to the NSA is alright in my book.

Have them read through the Office 365 Trust Center docs ... https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/TrustCenter/CloudServices/Office-365 ... with regard to your specific industry (and others).  I don't think there are too many security, privacy, compliance, and transperancy regulations and certifications that Microsoft does not adhere to.
