Hi there, I have an Outlook client hooked to Exchange server that keeps moving mail to the deleted items constantly. There are no rules etc setup. The account is setup on an Ipad and Iphone but all looks fine. We have done a full virus sweep and it seems ok any ideas?

Hi,

The problem is occuring due to the virus to resolve it

1). First use MFCmapi.exe to delete any hidden ,corrupt or normal rule on this mailbox.


2). Disable all the add-ins from outlook.


3). Now use following cmdlt to get permission on this mailbox.

 
Get-MailboxPermission -Identity Test1 | Format-List

Please use following cmdlt to get adpermission on this user.

Get-ADpermission -Identity  Ted | Format-List


Please try to perform a clean boot to disable all the third party application services to narrow down the issue.

Hope this will work for you

Thanks & Regards
Dexter

First thing I'd do is launch Outlook with the /cleanrules switch:

Click Start > Run (or press your Windows + R keys simultaneously) > type in the Run dialog box: outlook.exe /cleanrules > click OK

If that doesn't resolve the issue then create a new Outlook profile as the next step. See this article if you need help doing this: https://support.office.microsoft.com/en-us/article/Create-an-Outlook-profile-f544c1ba-3352-4b3b-be0b-8d42a540459d?CorrelationId=b4c2cb46-2fec-4206-8fb1-3efc6dc55f41&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

No real need to delete the old Outlook profile, just keep it as a backup unless you need the space.

This is still not solved came back 8 hours later. Machine scans clean and server and happens in OWA so not Outlook causing the problem?

Have you tried running Outlook with the /cleanrules switch as per my previous post? This will clear both client side and server side rules from the mailbox.

Yes it does as Outlook has the ability to make changes to the mailbox on the server (in this case it can clear the rules from the mailbox).

Otherwise you'll need to use the MFCMAPI tool (providing it's a corrupted rule that's causing this) which can be very confusing for first time users.

I did but I am going to need to get my head around it as it throws an error on everything I try saying I either don't have the correct version or Outlook is not installed. I have never used it before so its a good chance it is my lack of knowledge of the program

For the last two hours I have been reviewing the mailbox and so far today nothing has moved. Do you think it could be the Ipad or Iphone doing this?

It very well could be. Try removing then re-adding the account on both the iPhone and iPad.
