    This seems to be strange, can you please delete all rules and create a new rule in your outlook and then check again.

    Accepted Solution

    Some of them could have been voting emails, the remainder of them could be getting filtered or hidden

    If you only have the one rule, as above try and delete and recreate

    If you have several rules, I wouldnt delete all your rules uless you had them written down somewhere

    Personally I would try running clen views first
    Close outlook and re-open using
    Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleanviews

    This will reset any modified or custom view setup on the folders in outlook
    If its just a view that causing the subject to look funny it will fix it
