I have a user that cannot delete an email in her email box. They get the message
happens when trying to delete
i took and renamed the ost file to backup and it didn't fix the issue the email still can not be erased.

i checked to see if the account was in cache mode and it isn't.

it appears to be only that one email so far.

Thanks!

Have you tried logging into OWA and checking if the email resides in there? If so does it allow you to delete the email from that?

The error indicates Exchange already believes the email has been removed or moved from the location you are trying to remove it from.

What happens if you completely recreate the user profile in Control Panel > Mail? Does the email persist?

Yes, it comes up with asking if i want to perminately delete the item. I hit yes and it throws the same dialog box. When i hit more details it talks about trying to delete over 4,000 messages and also about not having permission to delete the message.  I have permission but not for that one email for some reason.
