Removing the filter within Outlook98

I have a client workstation running NT 4.0 with Outlook98. The filter some how got turned on and i am unable to remove it. Now whenever the person using the workstation reads a new email it is deleted afterwards. I have tried looking for an option with Outlook, the users profile settings on the exchange box and uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook on the workstation. However the filter remains turned on.

Please Help

Does "it is deleted afterwards" mean it is moved to the "Deleted Items" folder, removed from the server but kept in his inbox, or lost completely?

View > Current View > Define Views.  You can highlight each view (filter) and click reset to get back the default view.

This does not sound like a "Filter" setting but a problem with Outlook or Exchange.  When the user gets new mail, does it go to his Exchange mailbox or his Personal Folders?  If he moves a mail before reading it, is it still lost when read?  When does it actually become lost (As soon as the message is closed, when closing Outlook, ?)

All emails go to the Exchange mailbox.
However after reading and then closing the email it is lost without any trace of it in any folders.

Check with your Exchange Administrator.  It appears that the server is set to delete read messages immediately.  To work around, select all messages in the inbox, right-click and select "Move to folder" and move them to another folder.  Build a new folder for this purpose if necessary.  Or you can install Personal Folders (if they are not already present), then change "Delivey Options" to the Personal Folders Inbox instead of the Mailbox Inbox.

Sorry, I should have mentioned where to change the delivery options.  Go To Tools, Services, Delivery and choose "Personal Folders" from the "Deliver to. . ." dropdown list.  If you use the "Move to Folder" option, be sure to do this BEFORE the messages are read.

Check out Tools>Rules Wizard and see if there are any rules set. Someone could set a rule here to delete any incoming email that is sent to To or CC. If it is a filter issue, go to View>Current View>Filter click on it to open it and then click Clear All.
