Outlook email going to "Sent Items" and not "Inbox"
Posted on 2006-04-19
I am using Exchange Server 2000 and Outlook 98 in a corporate environment. I have a user who reported that emails from one person in the company were going into her "Sent Items" folder instead of the "Inbox". I checked to see if rules existed and they did not. I tested this on a test PC (with both the sender and receiver's Outlook profiles installed) and the test email did go into "sent items".
I set up a rule to move this senders emails to the "Inbox". That worked. I then removed the rule. I sent another test email and it went to the "inbox" without a rule present.
Obviously, my problem is fixed and I really can't duplicate it. My question is this....can anyone tell my why the emails were going into "Sent Items" to begin with? Is there a registry setting for that? or maybe a property that could be edited using ADSI Edit?
