Some of the emails will disappeared automatically in sub-folders and Inbox in outlook 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use IMAP to send and receive emails.

    Recently, we found that some of the emails will disappeared automatically in sub-folders and Inbox.


    And the case goes worse in these 2 weeks, more and more emails disappeared.


    Our IT checked out that one of the email goes to the "Deleted items" folder, and 2 days later, the email was even disappeared in that folder. But one only person is checking that email account, and she hasn't delete / move that email.


    I saw that many people discussed on the Net that they have the same problem when using Outlook 2013.

    May I know what the problem is? And how can it be resolved?

  • Hi,

    I suggest you check the following settings:

    1. AutoArchive. Make sure there's no AutoArchive setting that removes emails from Outlook folders:

    Right click on a folder, click "Properties -> AutoArchive", check the settings.

    2. Rules. Please check the rules in Outlook, make sure there is no rule deleting emails.

    3. 3rd-party add-ins. Check if there is any 3rd-party email purge add-ins in Outlook:

    File -> Options -> Add-ins.

    I actually don't think it would be a Filter thing, as the emails are moved to the Deleted Items folder as mentioned, a filter doesn't do this.
