The contents of a user's inbox keeps disappearing.  She can get them back by sending herself a message but I'd like to stop them disappearing in the first place.

I've already done the following:

1. Reset all the views
2. Created a new mail profile for her
3. Switched off all rules.
4. Followed http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287577

Any other things to try ?

Many thanks

Check if another PC gets any use.
I have seen this happen when one PC is setup correctly, but another is set with a profile configured to "deliver to PST" - usually caused by Wizard profile create and a mis-spelt server name.

Each time the bad PC is used, the inbox content is pulled off the Exchange server.

Also check Auto Archive settings on the folder.
