The mails resides in the users mailbox on exchange or on the external server?

Subject: [exchangelist] can't receive dilemma

I'm a newbie so please bear with me, apologies if this has already been 
addressed. I recently acquired an Exchange Server 2000 setup with about 50 
mailboxes. All seem to be working well. The smtp server actually resides on 
an externally IP'd  Linux box and using a redirector script there inside 
sendmail the mail is forwarded over to the Exchange Server. 49 mailboxes 
work great; however there's one that is causing some headaches.

I have one mailbox that we can't seem to get to the user's PC. He can send 
mail from his PC but when he tries to retrieve messages the system appears 
to be doing 'it's thing' but nothing comes in.

I've looked inside his mailbox on the server and can see that there are 
messages there, 22 to be exact as of yesterday, that have about 91K of 

Can someone give me an idea of the best way to remedy this situation. TIA 
for all your help.
