  1. ** Outlook 2003 Sorry wrong title **

    Hi just having a problem with the sent items with one of our customers...

    They can send emails no problem, they appear in the sent items folder after, but then every so often the emails just disappear, i thought she was just deleting them by accident or something but i sat in front had a look, and about 5 emails just cleared in front of me, cant figure out what it is at all.. Ive checked all the settings there's no setting to say delete after so long, and the save sent messages is ticked, Ive tried to mirror another accounts settings but no change. just wondered if anyone has had the same problem or knows how to fix it ?

    Our next thought was re-install office and add the email account again

    thanks in advance

    Joe

    Hello,

    I think what you should try is to reinstall Outlook.

    That seems to be the only solution.

    Hi sorry still having problems with this I have re-installed office and still have the same problem
    Ive deleted the pst file and still get the sent items deleted, Ive contacted the host and they say its nothing to do with them.
    Do you think creating a new user account on windows may help
    or is formatting the best option ?

    thanks for any help

    If the problem is just that one account then I would try createing a new one and if that works then delete the old one.

    I need to reply to you, to inform you not to delete any accounts
    Especially not the Windows user account.
    Deleting the Windows user account can cause many issues with installed Programs; Security updates (logs and uninstalls) and is generally not a good idea.

    The fault Outlook 2003/2007 (happens on both actually) can be caused by a few possibilities.

    1. Rules in Outlook
    Please check: Outlook - tools - rules and alerts. For any rules that are there (just remove them all to be safe)
    2. Virus/Trojan
    Obviously there could be a Virus or Trojan on the system (I don't believe this is it though)
    3. Antivirus/Firewall
    Personal Antivirus/Firewalls, can become corrupt (Just like Windows can)
    Your best approach would be to fully uninstall any Antivirus/Firewall product (or any other live protection program)
    Test Emails again
    Then re-install, a new (downloaded online) Antivirus/Firewall program

    Please advise if this fixed the fault. Also let me know what AntiVirus/Firewall product you are using

    Waiting for your reply...
