  1. My Outlook has just started sending all my emails directly into my Deleted Items folder and bypasses the Inbox. I have run 3 anti-virus scans (Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot--thorough scans). They found no viruses.

    I did go and create a rule for a couple of contacts for them to go into the Inbox. Now they go into the Inbox and the Deleted Items folder.

    I am very unsure of what to do now. I would appreciate any help you give me.

    Couple questions.

    1) Are you using Full Outlook or Outlook express?
    2) Do the times in the deleted folder have any weird tagging on them (in the subject line)?
    3) Is this connecting to an exchange server (like at work) or are you just using this for personal emails. (ie what email address are you getting email on )
    4) do you remember any thing that you did recently in changing settings/ installing any new software, etc. . .
