Email Disappears


There is a problem, When a user receives email in their inbox it will Disappears in about a minute.
I will do a search and I can find it. I checked if there is a rule and there isn't. Also, I checked the Filter and it is off. What else can I do to resolve this? They are using an Exchange Server.

If they are both hooked up her notebook is moving her mail off of the server which is why it disappears from the Exchange folder

If you can find the email where is it going? I have run into a similar issue when I was using 2 email accounts (exchange and gmail) in the same Outlook session. Do you have any PST files to see if the files are being sent there? Are they going into Junk email folder?

Have you tried to create a new Outlook profile and see if this works for you.

Does these emails go into the deleted items folder? Also check auto archive to make sure this is also not an issue.

How can I tell what folder it is going in? I sent A test email and when I do a search in all folders I see it.
But when I choose the inBox, Deleted items, Spam folder its not there?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

When you do a find, one of the columns that you can add to the display is "In Folder" and that will tell you where it's been moved to.

Do the following...
- Search for the email
- When you have found the email using the search feature, open the email
- When you open the email click File, Properties (Outlook 2007 click the office button, then properties)
- Then it will show you the folder location

Also check if this does it from OWA. If it doesn't then it is something on the client/profile side.

I had the same problem once: for whatever reason, the inbox filter got activated to exclude read mail, so it seemed that messages would disappear. So if that's the case, here is the solution:

1. go to Inbox (and any other folder where the problem exists) and left click on the "Arrange by" bar on top
2. click on "Custom..."
3. click on "Filter"
4. go to "More Choices"
5. deselect "Only items that are..."

I hope this helps.

Any ideas?

Should I copy her pst to the other notebook?

If you have confirmed that her old system was moving the email off of the server and want to access that from the new system then yes you'll want to move the .pst file to the new system.

This was the same issue with one of my user . I saw that his emails were deleting automatically and I could find all his emails from RECOVER DELETED ITEMS . So I recovered all his emails from there however it was just a temporary fix. To fix this issue, we had to reset the password of user and after that the issue is resolved.

Wish you all the BEST. Please let me know if it helps or you have any questions.

Regards,
Shilpa

Well everybody, I am connected to both notebooks and yes! she did have her email pointing to the local machine.
I changed the path on that notebook in outlook 2003, to point to the Exchange server, but when I go back to the new notebook with Outlook 2010 her email is still disappearing?

I also found that she has using another email account  in her personal folders.A domain account and hardly nothing  is  in her exchange account.

Changing a path will not stop the old system from copying the emails from the server to the machine.  You'll need to turn that option off in the settings or remove the Exchange account from that system.
