Exchange 2013 / Outlook default Folders name changed

Exchange 2013 with Outlook 2013, 1 user that somehow had the default inbox and sent folders renamed to Deleted Items.  So I now see three deleted items folders, but one is actually inbox and the other sent items.  I logged into webmail, it's listed the same on the server as well, 3 folders named deleted items. No other users having this issue, so issue seems to be isolated to 1 user.

Never saw this before, found many articles on web stating you can't change default folder names, but now I need to change these folders names back to inbox and sent items again.

Thanks !

Start Outlook with the /resetfoldernames switch see if that helps

I did give that a try earlier, but it did not change the names back to default.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Another way to fix this is through mfcmapi. It looks either this has been changed through vbscript or this has been done by virus normally it is not possible

When I follow the instructions for the mfcmapi to change the name I get the following error:

Error:
Code: MAPI_E_CORRUPT_DATA == 0x8004011B

After attempting the MFCMAPI with no success, I found no other option other than to export the mail, delete the corrupted mailbox and re-create / import the mail back in.
