We have an outlook 2010 client connecting to an exchange 2010 server.  The problem for one user (the CEO) is that when he deletes certain emails they show up in his email box again when doing a send and receive.  He's the only one to experience this problem.  We also use BES, but the problem does not repeat itself there.

Thanks

  Check his Outlook setting for "Leave copy of messages on the server". It sounds like he has it set to but that the UID of the e-mails isn't working correctly. If that option is set than also set the "delete from server when deleted from deleted folder".

I've also seen funky things like that when Outlook has Cached Exchange Mode checked.  I always disable that as it causes extreme craziness.

Is he deleting the emails from his Blackberry or from the Outlook client.  If he is doing this from his Blackberry, you will need to go into messages, and go into options, and go into email reconsiliation, and then in the delete on, set it to handheld and mailbox.

Do the messages only reappear when he clicks on send and receive?  If he doesn't click the send and receive button, how long does it take for the messages to reappear?

Also is the CEO configured on his Outlook client to connect to an exchange server or to use a POP3 or IMAP account?

Are you able to setup the CEO's mail on a different workstation to see if the problem can be replicated?  If so, this will determine if the machine or account is the issue.
