Are these legit emails or junk?  My first thought it that it could be a result of your virus protector.  What are you using for protection on this machine?

Hi

Have come across this before with one of my users and the cause of the problem was the Outlook 2010 "Ignore" feature.  This feature is kinda like Gmail's Mute feature - it automatically moves messages from the ignored sender to Deleted Items on Send/Receive.  The user had accidentally clicked ignore on a message from a sender with no subject on the message and Outlook's ignore feature did the rest.

This is made even worse with "Conversation View", since Outlook groups messages with the same header line into conversations.  If a no-subject message is in your deleted items, further no-subject messages will be grouped into that "conversation."

But, I found the key to this madness was the Ignore function.  "Unignore" the senders of the messages in your Deleted Items and hopefully the problem will stop.

Hi
These are legit emails and can be sent from anyone. Lately I have had a few emails from different people sending quick one or two line messages, but with no subject. All of these emails went directly into Deleted Items. All other emails (with a subject) go into my Inbox. This has nothing to do with my anti-virus software.

I have looked at the ignore function and thats not it either.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Question - do you have any third party anti-spam products installed that might be doing this based on a rule?
