missing email from user's inbox

We have a user on Exchange and Outlook 2003.  Every email arrives to her Inbox will disappear in a few seconds.  I have asked the user to shut down her desktop and still the same issue.  

Please advise.

Check the View.  Click View; click Arrange By; click Current View and make sure it is set to Messages and not New Messages.

Check rules, and check junkmail settings. Also check antivirus/antispam for anything that might be in there. Also make sure she doesnt have "pop" mail setup somewhere else like her phone or home PC.

If it just the inbox, the user has another computer or a mobile phone that is pulling the messages down using POP3 and then deleting hem from the server.

You need to identify the other device / computer and stop it downloading the mail, then put all the mail back again by importing the mail from the .PST.

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

She has only one PC and that has been shut down.  Same behavior.

Is it possible to pull the Exchange log for her account you will see every client (IP address) that is accessing her account?

If you view the mailbox properties in System Manager does it show that the user has items?  If you send a new item does the count go up?

In the user's AD account, on the Exchange General tab, click the Delivery Options button and make sure it's not configured to forward the mail to a different user (although you shouldn't even see anything temporarily hit the mailbox if this were the case).

I will bet a pound to a penny that there is another email account configured on another computer somewher (or mobile phone) and that it is pulling the emails down.

One way to test - block port 110 on your firewall and see if the problem stops.

The handheld suppose to pull message from RIM.  RIM gets the messages from our BES server.  

If there was something within the LAN to pull message, blocking 110 from the FW is not going to help.

Kelle1, as mentioned, the message did arrive to her MB but disappeared after 5 seconds.

Okay - so turn off her Blackberry then and see if the problem stops.

I move her MB to another location and the issue is not happening.  Anyone has any idea about this behavior?

Did you turn off her Blackberry before moving the mailbox?
