Hi,
I have a user that wrote an email and sent it. It got stuck in its outbox with 3 other emails. He tried to resend thembut didn't work.
He close outlook and reopen it and they were all vanished!!
I chcekd in Sent Items in Brouillon, under Reverering for all folders "inbox, sent outbox, deleted" and they are not there!
I chcked the windows temp files, the internet temp files the user them files and it's all the same .
I know word use to create a (wave*)..doc document but do outlook create that too?
What ca be done?
We are on exchange 2003 with outlooks 2010 windows 7

I would check the connectivity between Outlook and the server. From the information you have given it sounds like the emails were temporarily on the PC but was never written to drafts/sent items on the server.

When Outlook restarted it may have resynchronised with the server and those emails would have disappeared.

May also be worth doing an OST scan on the PC in case there's corruption there.

As for the missing emails - if they don't show up on Outlook or OWA (webmail) then they are likely gone and will need re-typing.

There is an Outlook setting in the options to save sent messages in the sent items folder. If this is not select the sent items are not saved.

- Open Outlook
- Click File Options
- Click on the Mail Tab
- Under Save Messages, make sure that "save forward messages, and save copies of messages in the sent items folder"

There may be a temp file where the emails were created but i highly doubt that you will be able to get anything out of it.
