Outlook 2010

Is it possible that an e-mail will appear in the Inbox, or Sent box or Outbox in Outlook in the profile on one workstation and not be present/appear in the same profile but on a different workstation, say on a Terminal Server?

Sure if one Outlook is offline or not up to date. That is a quick and simple explanation.

Also, each Outlook email account creates a different email file (new with Outlook 2010) so that may be the cause. ... Thinkpads_User
If you are using Exchange you could have your Outlook delivering mail to a personal folder instead of delivering it to your actual Exchange mail box.

Set pst-file as default delivery for Exchange account

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Thanks for the feed back. I don't think any of the above are valid. Outlook is running under Exchange and is delivering e-mail in the Inbox. USer loging in to any workstation, Terminal Server or Webmail access sees the same Inbox/Sent box/Outbox. Once an e-mail is received it appears in the Inbox in all boxes almost simulteniously. Perhaps I should have mentioned that Outlook was linked to Exchange Server. Personally I don't believe that this is possible.
Thanks for your attention and ttime to respond.

Please clarify the situation at hand.

The above post says one user (only one user) logs into any workstation (so multiple workstations) and sees the same issue.

Is this correct?

Yes this is correct. Outlook is setup under Exchange. User has his personal work station and Outlook is setup under Exchange. Same user also logs onto Terminal Server and Outlook is also setup on that under Exchange. He claims that he found a message in his Outbox when he logged in on the Terminal Server which wasn't on his workstsation! Personally I believe this is not possible. I may be wrong, hence my question. Your view on the issue is most appreciated. Thanks.

In general, I do not think this is possible. However, since the user is using Terminal Server when roaming around and otherwise, his own workstation, try doing an Outlook Repair on that workstation.

Office 2010 is now up to SP1 plus loads of patches. So first, go to Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs), click on Office, Change and do a Repair. Then make sure SP1 is installed and all the patches.

Also, do you have another like workstation with Outlook 2010 where you could set the user up with a temporary windows userid, setup Outlook?  Does the same issue occur?

OWA will be the most accurate if any other Outlook client isn't working correctly. Compare it with this. I believe the same as you - the user is most likely mistaken. For it to work correctly other than one email, I don't believe it could happen. Unless Outlook was offline on one of the systems, then it would update as soon as it reconnected. So again not really possible.
