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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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
