You can perform some basic troubleshooting in Outlook by holding Ctrl down and right-clicking on the Outlook tray icon and selecting "Connection Status..." and "Test E-mail AutoConfiguration..."  Can you post the results of these two tests?

Is the view accidently filtered:

Select the relevant folder in the explorer then

View | Current View | Define Views | Current view settings | Reset

At the are you sure select ok ... note any view you created deliberately will be removed ... but can be recreated of course

If you are seeing ALL messages in OWA but not in Outlook, you probably have a corrupt .ost file on your local computer, so close down Outlook, delete the local .ost file for your profile, then open up outlook again and let it pull down your mailbox again.

You should now see everything.

Great news - it usually resolves most problems where OWA shows info but Outlook doesn't.

Thanks for the points.
