All messages go directly to the Deleted Items Folder

Just the other day all of my incoming email are going directly to the deleted items fodler.  There are no rules setup in out look and the automatic junk mail filter is turned off.  I also checked the group policies to make sure there was nothing goof set there as well.  Running Exchange 2007 with a single mailbox server with 2 storage groups / mail databases.  I can move my mailbox to the other mail database then my incoming mail goes to the inbox for a while,  then reverts back to going directly to the deleted items folder.  As far as I can tell this is only affecting my mailbox.  Not sure where else to look, I have already exausted all of the easy solutions.  Any help?

Have you installed any new addons or toolbars on your outlook? Try running outlook /safe and see if that happens still or better yet, close your outlook from all workstations and use OWA and see if this happens in OWA as well.

If it is a rule, it can be a server or a client rule.  Check rules on OWA to make sure it isn't there and Outlook 2007 just isn't seeing it.  Check ALL of your computers on which you run Outlook 2007 for a client based rule which may be doing this.

This is your most likely culprit.

additional infomation:  I still have one exchange 2003 server in my enviroment.  When I move my mailbox to the 2003 server, everything functions as it should,  move it back to the 2007 mailbox server and everything goes to the deleted items folder.

I have ran outlook in safe mode, I have started outlook with the /cleanrules switch, that is suppose to cleanup any rules (server or client side), and I have tried running strictly with OWA.  So far the only thing that fixes it, is moving the mailbox to an Exchange 2003 server, which is unacceptable.
Veeam and MySQL: How to Perform Backup & Recovery

MySQL and the MariaDB variant are among the most used databases in Linux environments, and many critical applications support their data on them. Watch this recorded webinar to find out how Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to get consistent backups of MySQL databases.

Justin OwensITIL Problem ManagerCommented:
For a point of clarification, the /cleanrules switch will only clean Client rules on the computer/profile from which it is run.  If you have client based rules residing on another pc/profile, they will remain there.
If you have eliminated the client rule, and if it still happens when running only OWA, it would indicate a server based action.  When a mailbox is migrated from 2003 to 2007 the autoprocessing flag sometimes get inadvertently set.  Did you check it?
Try this from the Shell:

get-mailboxcalendarsettings "domain/ou/user" | fl     set-mailboxcalendarsettings "doman/ou/user"   -automateprocessing: Autoupdate

the Automateprocessing was set to autoaccept, not autoupdate.  after setting it to autoupdate, everything started to work as it should.

Thank You
We had this same problem, but this solution did not work.
Has anyone else found another resolution?
