I've got a bit of a weird one. I create a new user in AD and go
through relevant Exchange tasks but the mailbox does not get created
and the RUS isn't adding any addresses to the user. I am able to login
to the domain as the user. I've tried the following things to create
the mailbox and the email addresses:

I have waited for over 24 hours to see if RUS will eventually update
but it doesn't. I have tried to send an email to the user but the name
does not resolve. The name also does not resolve when trying to setup
an Outlook profile. I've checked that the OUs in AD are inheriting
security as suggested in 297124 XADM: Recipient Update Service Does
Not Stamp Users and No
Error Is Logged.

I'm quickly running out of ideas. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.
