Exchange: Name Could Not be Matched to a Name in the Address List

English: “Name Could Not be Matched to a Name in the Address List”
Dutch: “Naam niet gevonden in de adreslijst”

Outlook showed this error while setting up the mailbox profile.
The user could login in to OWA without issues. In my case it had nothing to do with the Global Address List or Offline Address book.
Seems some attributes on the user in Active Directory were missing. In Exchange console i disabled the mailbox and thus removing exchange attributes from the user. The mailbox them became disconnected, and next I connected the mailbox again to the same user.

After that everything worked! If you have multiple AD sites remember that the Domain Controllers need time to sync.
