I have a user with XP pro and outlook 2007 who is missing the deleted items folder.  This is an exchange - outlook not pop or imap.  I can't find out how this happened and I can't find out how to get this back. anyone know?  I tried outlook.exe /resetfolders and tried to delete the profile and recreate it again.  no luck.

Try starting Outlook with the /resetfolders switch

outlook.exe /resetfolders

Disregard - just reread that you tried it already.

I can give you final shot if this also shows the same (What do you see in OWA\Webmail) ?

If OWA doesnt shows Deleted Items folder as well then do the below simple
1. Take data to PST
2. Disconnect the Mailbox and AD account
3. Create a new Mailbox and Export the data

Yes seems so .... as the Mailbox is working fine and if OWA is fine means Mailbox is fine

Is the Outlook all updated ? Can we try to get user on a different machine and see if the issue is re-producable ?

I would either try to Repair or Re-install the Outlook
