Deleted mail in junk folder, still appearing in OWA - Exchange2010 sp3

Hi Guys,

I have noticed that if I delete an email from my Outlook junk folder, it doesn't seem to replicate through to my OWA junk mail folder view.   However, if I empty my deleted messages folder in Outlook, after a couple of minutes and a browser refresh it disappears from the folder on OWA - junk mail still the same.   So I assume there is some sort of sync issue or perhaps a config setting.

I do recall someone telling me they were having the same issue but with another folder.  

Any suggestions,

Appreciate your time and comments

Do you by chance have Outlook cached mode enabled? I have seen OST problems cause sync issues. If so, close Outlook, delete the OST file, and re-launch Outlook. The OST file will rebuild.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I have done what you said, however, it hasn't worked.  Interesting enough, when I delete the OST file, and Outlook rebuilds the file, the junk mail is back.

So to recap what's happening.  I have email in my junk mail folder.  I delete this, then empty my deleted items folder.  As far as Outlook is concerned the email is gone.  However, if I log into my OWA the junk mail is still there.  If I delete my Outlook OST and open it back up again, and the junk mail reappears.

Therefore, the problem seems to lie with the syncing between my junk mail folder and the server.  My other folders seem to be OK.

You could try turning on logging in Outlook.

Also, is Outlook showing any sync errors?

The sync logs pointed me in the right direction.  The following hot fixed seem to work for me.
