Is it maybe that they are being delayed before they are actually sent..? Maybe the sit in the Outbox and then are delivered after a couple of hours? Can you describe your environment...?

worth checking the exchange server for any hiccups. also, is her outbox clear of all items? if there are items pending in outbox, they really havent been sent yet. is she on wireless? try putting her on cable to check if there is considerable effect.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Actually, I see a bunch of semt messages in teh sent folder that look pretty recent.  It might be an address to or two that gets caught in the outbox for a while.  I'll investiagate a bit further.

yeah. the moment the msg leaves the outbox it is supposed to reach the sent folder. check around this one.

The actual view of outlook was messed up.  The user has trouble seeing, so they use 800x600 resolution on their monitor.  Outlook condenses to fit the resolution, leaving fields out, and fools with the scrollbar in ways it probably shouldn't.  I fiddled around with the views, field chooser, etc, and viola - messages were appearing in the sent box as they should.  Wonders never cease...

I gave credit to all who helped.  Thank you!
