Inbox mails disappears in Exchange 2003
Posted on 2004-11-22
I have this strange problem that none of my users has but me. I have exchange 2003 running on windows 2003 and using OUTLOOK 2003. Since this morning, my emails in the inbox started to disappear without any error message. It happens to only the INBOX. As soon as the mail arrives, it stays there for about 1 minute and then disappears. Even my previous inbox emails disappeared. I've checked the rules, view, autoarchieve and etc. None of them can cause this problem. The problem seems to be with the Exchange server itself. When I logged-in from another machine using Outlook and OWA, emails disappears from inbox. It also happens to all the mailboxes that I've opened in my exchange profile (not just mine). I have no .PST file.
Someone had same problem on this forum (Mail disappears from Exchange Inbox - asked by Chris Ham). I followed the suggestions and changed the password to my account. Although the account hasn't locked up, mails no longer disappear. When I checked the security log on the domain controller, following event shows up every one minute:
The logon to account: tim_user
from workstation: Exchangesrv1
failed. The error code was: 3221225578
BTW, this morning I received an email (claiming) from Comcast about my cable account statement, which I canceled about three months ago. I clicked on the link ( I know I shouldn'd). It took me to Comcast's logon page. I have windows XP with SP2. Could this have something to do with this? Any other suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks
