! When I receive an email it's getting immediately disappear from outlook! Why won't email stay in my inbox? I'm on outlook
Did you read the article? The most likely culprit may be anti-virus software.
I'm using Outlook 2003 and all my mail is now being moved automatically into my Deleted Items (it was previously working fine). They appear briefly in the Inbox then just move, also when I open Outlook the mail that has arrived overnight is there...briefly, then one by one is shunted into Deleted Items. I've checked the Junk Mail settings and it is set to "No Automatic Filtering" and there are no blocked domains or anything. There is no other spam filter installed. I've trawled through Outlooks options, googled and KBed. Any suggestions? (Win XP SP1 workstation, our network runs on Win2000SBS, we host our own Exchange mail server )
If junk mail filtering is turned off, the next most likely culprits are: anti-virus software on you machine, and/or a misconfigured message Rule (Tools->Rules and Alerts). I'd check 'em both.
You were spot on, it was an over-zealous message Rule.
Some of my emails are flashing through the inbox but i cant find them in either junk mail or deleted box. I am using MacAfee. Are they just being vaporised?
Certainly could be. Try turning off MacAfee's email processing and see if the behavious stops. If it does .. check with MacAfee support for what to do to make it behave properly.
Ta! Very useful. You saved me even more stress with the anti virus advice. i can get back on ebay now

If either of the recommendations above resolve your issue then the most likely suspect is that your view (message with preview) on and your settings on reading pane options under options, other is set to mark items as read after they are selected and viewed for 5 seconds. The messages drop off of that pane and appear to be deleted but are actually reflecting a status of read which your indicator on the In Box shows as being decreased every 5 seconds (default is 5 seconds).
I've got similar problem happening right now.
Emails in the inbox are being deleted half a second after being in the inbox. This is actualy also affecting the webmail client. It deletes them from that as well.
The computer is running Norton, not MacAffee. I turned of the spam filter, and then and turn off norton completley. I also messed around with all the reading pane options.
