Outlook 2013 / Hosted Exchange 2010 emails in sent items, never actually sent

Hi Experts,

i have a random issue when sending bulk emails are appearing in the 'Sent Items' folder, but never actually getting sent.  We're using Outlook 2013, connecting to a Hosted Exchange 2010 server.  The Outlook account is cached (6 months), and only happens with 1 or 2 emails when sending approximately 80 emails (invoices) through Reckon Accounts Premier 2014.
When i log onto OWA for the Exchange account, the emails don't appear in the sent items.

Has anybody seen this issue??  It's very frustrating, as we have to check every email and cross reference if it was actually sent.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Your hosted Exchange provider may have a Throttling Policy that dictates how many emails you can send in a given time. Or, how many recipients can be on each email.

Thanks for the quick replies.  Unfortunately Gareth, we can wait a day for this email to sync / send and it never does.

Dash i was thinking it might be Reckon, but didn't know where to start.  Thank you for the insight, i'll do some testing this afternoon to see if we can nut out a corrupted email contact etc.

I've just done some further checking.. From the sounds of that Article, the email just doesn't send?? With my issue, I'm still getting email in my sent items in Outlook (cached).  Emails don't appear in OWA sent items.  Exchange / Smart Host (Fortinet) logs don't show any existence of the email being sent.

Hi everyone,
sorry for the late reply.  I've done some testing with a lab setup, and found that it's actually a Microsoft Exchange 2010 issue.  I only found this out over the weekend after another client was having the same issue but using a different program to perform mail outs (ruling out QuickBooks).  After applying Exchange 2010 SP2 CU 6 the offline / online folders were synchronized and emails were sent correctly.   Appreciate your help with this issue!
