We have a user that has an iPhone which communicates with outlook via exchange and activesync. This user is getting some emails on his phone but they are not appearing in outook. This is not happening with all emails and is more of a "random" thing. Has anyone else ever experienced this issue and how was it solved?

Thanks

Check OWA and if the emails exist in OWA (and on the iPhone), close Outlook, remove the Outlook .OST file and then open up Outlook which will re-generate the .OST file and suck down all the mail from Exchange again.

This should then keep everything in sync.

Does the user have any rules that is moving the mail into different folders in outlook?  I have seen end users confused in Outlook 2010 using conversation view, FYI.

Worth checking obvious things like ensuring the users doesn't have Outlook in Offline mode.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Also check to make sure they don't unknowingly have a filter turned on in Outlook.

I have checked OWA and it is no different. He is also not receiving all emails that are sent to him, these are going through exchange and are being sent to his mailbox but they do not appear in his email. He has no filters he is online mode as he is receiving most emails. All items he gets goes to his inbox and he then transfers these into the relevant folders himself.

If the emails are not in OWA then they are either not on Exchange or the Exchange database is corrupt which is why they are not in Outlook.  Outlook can only show what is on the Exchanger server.

Has the iPhone got another email account setup on it that is pulling the messages down via SMTP / POP3?
