Some Sent Items appear in Recover Deleted Items

Hi all,

I have a baffling issue.  I have some users who are using the Recover Deleted Items function in Outlook.

When they browse to the items that they want to recover, they are seeing emails that they have sent but not deleted.

I have tried to find the answers to this but cannot find a reasonable answer as to why this is.

I've attached a example of a users mailbox.  The top picture is of the users Sent Items folder in Outlook, and the bottom picture is the Recover Deleted Items dialogue box from the same users mailbox, and as you can see the same sent mails are in there as well.

Can anyone shed any light?

Thanks

Hi MKS,

we're using Exchange 2010 SP3 & Outlook 2010/2013.

There is no archiving solution in place.

Instinct is that they are drafts of messages, that were saved during composition, then deleted when they were sent. As they were drafts they would be stored in the mailbox, and the act of sending them is seen by the database as a delete action (which it technically is).

Simon.
