here's a brain cruncher

1 user is NOT receiving email from 3 specific domains when he is in CC. When he is in to field, no probs. exchange 2007 message tracking shows email IS delivered. so they are received to hismailbox, and passing spamfilter etc
Other domains are fine.
no rules in exchange or outlook. Disabled OST on client, no joy. checked webmail. but no mail.

Has to be in the mailbox somewhere.
If message tracking is showing the message was delivered to the mailbox then it is there somewhere.  Spam filter is a pretty likely choice.
I would also check views, to ensure that the user doesn't have a view to ignore any messages not sent to him.

The user has no views setup. no filters etc
we will have te user log on to fresh installed machine. this way no view settings should be in the way.

View settings are stored in the mailbox, they aren't machine specific.
Therefore a new machine doesn't prove anything.
Has the user told you they aren't using a view, or have you reset it? Similar for rules.

outlook.exe /cleanviews
outlook.exe /clearrules

I believe message tracking more than I believe the user.

sorry to say i've over estemated my users knowledge and trusted him 2 much.
turns out that after more investigation and crawling through his outlook, i've found a rule moving mails.
Also the user was under the impression that when an email was sent to him personally and also in the same mail to a dristribution groups, of which he is a memeber, he would receive 2 emails. one of which he wants to move to a different folder.

tnx for your time and effort. i'll be closing the question
