Hello

I think losing the plot, I have an Exchange Server 2003, I add a new user to a mailbox(shared)
I added the mailbox using imap to the server for all the users.  All the folders are different if you log into the mailbox using owa?   I go to outlook update all the folder, does not seem to do anything

So when you log on to OWA you see the folders as you want them but when you use IMAP they don't show right?  Can you give a screen shot of each?

Maybe some issues with the Shared mailbox itself .... Is Exchange Std, Ent or SBS ?

What if we create a new Mailbox and try with that ? Is there any other shared mailbox giving the same issue ?

We don't really have any shared mailboxes, why would the email disapear? I thought it might be in the users mailbox but its not,

Sometimes due to network latency or traffic slowness we do a task but the packets with the info drop resulting in the data lost .... for such reasons i have had to put some folks many a times on Outlook (Non-cache mode)

Possible but cant be to sure .... also check for any AV and ensure it has Exclusions and not scanning Exchange related stuff
