Iphone cannot get emails from Exchange server, just send...?

One of my user's iphone cannot receive emails: she gets the french message "Impossible de relever le courrier. La connexion au serveur a échoué" Impossible to pickup emails. The connection to the server has failed.

The phone can send an email but it cannot receive them.
When I enter all information under Settings / Account- Password and press finish: all is checked green.
I tried configuring her account on my own iphone and it works so I guess it is not related to the iphone.
On the account in Exchange Manager 2003: I see nothing "blocked" and she is the only one having that problem...
I read on the web about di-activating the ssl and so on but why would I need to suddenly play with those settings and since she is the only one ...

Try to install MS Office on the iPhone and see if that allows it to function properly.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Since I already tried on my Iphone which is connecting successfully  to our exchange server: I suspect something blocking that user on my Exchange...

I have deleted her exchange account on that phone and entered mine and it is working: I am able to retrieve my emails (and send).
So something with her email account on my Exchange server.

One of the most common causes for this is broken Access Control List (ACL) inheritance in Active Directory.
To check whether inheritance is disabled on the user:
1.      Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2.      On the menu at the top of the console, click View > Advanced Features.
3.      Locate and right-click the mailbox account in the console, and then click Properties.
4.      Click the Security tab.
5.      Click Advanced.
6.      Make sure that the check box for "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent" is selected.

@timgreen7077 The inheritance was active. I clicked on Default Settings to put all back to default and still the same problem.
On her phone: when I delete her account and recreate it: it does download a couple of emails... then it stops.

Think I got it and here's how.
On HER phone her account wasn't working and mine was so it was not her phone/version/sw
On MY phone my account was working and HERS no... and I have a different iphone and sw version...
So that excluded the Phones side.
Her account did not reach the Quota so that was excluded.
But I finally noticed a lot of email in her inbox: 1650.
I have a gmail with lots of email but that as much.
So I moved all her emails to a sub-folder under her inbox and then send her an email. She received it.
So far so good thanks all
