One user can't connect to Exchange via Outlook.

One user can't connect to Exchange via Outlook.
Outlook 2016/2019 & Exchange 2016

Few days ago the client was unable to setup an iphone for the user/mailbox.

Resolved the issue with the iphone setup, but next day Outlook started to prompt for credentials.

Repeated efforts to setup the account/re setup have all failed.  Tried different machines and versions of Outlook - no luck
Always repeated password prompts & then fails.   Tried to manually configure.
OWA access works just fine
Same workstation & logged in as the user in questions - Can create an Outlook profile & connect for other users.  
Went into AD, user, advance security & reset to defaults.   Made no differences.
Exchange mailbox hasn't changed.  Active sync/OWA enabled.

Sort of stumped short of the nuclear option...  any ideas?

In my office, problem is solved after set to"Anonymous authentication". Can you try?

Turned out the client got into the Exchange Management console & turned off IMAP for that user.
