Hi Mickdeeze, it is happening in Outlook? Please check the rules and alerts, maybe the user created a rule that deletes all incoming mail (In Outlook, go to Tools, Rules and Alerts...)

Regards...

Sounds like someone might be accessing the email account using a POP3 client, which is downloading and subsequently deleting the messages from the server. Perhaps they set up a pop3 client from home, possibly?.  Then from the office, they use Outlook to connect to the exchange server and their messages are gone, then when a message arrives they can see it, but when their outlook client checks for new messages from home, it then gets deleted from the server and from their mailbox view.
