Exchange Emails

In our company of 50 staff I have a problem with missing emails for 1 staff member only. When external emails are sent to this person they do not show up in Outlook. Internal emails are delivered and displayed OK.

If I leave Outlook closed and check for emails on my iPhone or OWA, the external emails are displayed and visible. The minute I open Outlook all the external mails are removed. Internals are not affected.

There are no Rules in Outlook and no Junk Settings configured.

Any ideas what could cause this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a corrupt  or hidden Outlook rule. What version of Exchange and Outlook are you running? Have you tried the following from a command line?

outlook.exe /cleanrules
outlook.exe /cleanserverrules

Ran both those commands and the same issue occurs.

I have also setup the mail account on another PC with another installation of Office 2010 and the same problem occurs.

When you say the emails are removed, do you mean they can't be found at all even if your search all contents of the mailbox using the search feature? Or are they moved to deleted items or another folder?

They can be found but only in Recover Deleted Items. They dont show in the Deleted folder and if you restore them they dont go back to their original location.

Hello,

Definitely sounds like a corrupt server-side rule. Following these instructions to use MFCMAPI to find and delete the rule.

Found the problem was due to a corrupt mailbox. I moved the mailbox to another database and created a new mailbox for the user and the issue was resolved.
