Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

Question: Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

I received an email from a friend last Saturday. I read it on Sunday from my Outlook inbox but did nothing with it. On Monday I went to reply but it had disappeared. I have repeatedly checked deleted items and everywhere else in Outlook and can't find it. Someone else who used my laptop on Sunday denies having done anything with the email. Can it have really disappeared without human intervention?
Thanks in anticipation....

Preferred Solution: Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

Depending on your email provider, and the Outlook settings, you may still be able to access the email on the provider's webmail page. For example, if you read BT emails through Outlook, going to and logging in there will show all emails received. BUT, if Outlook is not setup to leave mail on the server, they may not be there.

We have a user who's emails suddenly "disappear" from view when she is using Outlook 2007. Our Exchange server is running Exchange2010. The user has multiple Mailboxes that she has permission to view. Also, she has a PST file for archiving emails off of Exchange server.

When her emails "disappear" she is usually clicking on different folders that have been created under her in-box. She has to click around folders before the emails return to view in her in-box.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, what have you found as a resolution?

Answer:Outlook 2007 emails disappear

Are you sure she isn't dragging and dropping?

if all folders are on the exchange server, make sure she is allowing enough time for them to appear again after going to another folder. It probably isn't as fast as viewing files on your computer or network shares.

And no I have never experienced that phenonomon, but then we don't create a lot of folders on the exchange. Normally only PST folders on our computers.

When I read an email and click delete, it is suppose to go into my DELETED folder. When I go to my DELETED folder, all it shows is the unread emails. I am sure I did this by choosing some option when I first set this up....I am new to Outlook but now I can't figure out how to undo it. I want to be able to see my 'read' emails.

MS Outlook 2007 automatically deletes emails once they are read. The only way to save them is to move them to a folder other than the inbox. I felt there was probably a setting for this but I have been unable to find it. My older version of Outlook did not do this and I am at a loss. Thanks!!

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2007 deleting read emails

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Are the messages appearing in the Deleted Items folder?

Hi All,

Thanks for reading. I have a web based email which is a 123 webmail one. Up until late last week I was receiving emails no problem since then I have had nothing. It's not that I am unpopular.

I have narrowed the problem down to... I can receive emails sent from Google, Yahoo and Hotmail emails. But whenever an email is sent through outlook this outlook email not only does not arrive but it deletes everything else in my inbox.

My head is about to explode with frustration. I don't know what to do or how to solve this.

Looking for inspiration from anywhere.


Answer:Emails sent from outlook making other emails disappear

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Not sure why mail being sent through Outlook is not actually being sent. Does it report any errors when sending? Are the messages shown as being sent?

If you are having Outlook check for new incoming e-mails on your email account(s), it may be downloading them to your computer and then deleting them from the server. There should be an advanced options setting in Outlook to have it leave incoming messages on the server.

So this just started today (like an hour ago). When I get an email in Gmail it shows in my Inbox. If I open it to read it, and then close it, it still shows in my Inbox, but if I refresh then it disappears. Only unread emails show. If I check All Mail it shows the read emails, and shows the tag "Inbox", so they are still there, but just not visible. If I check them as unread in the All Mail view they show again in Inbox, but again, once read, they disappear. It's happening in both Chrome and Firefox. Anyone else having this issue?

For example, the Email or Message tile number disappear when you open and close the app though you may not have even opened and read the message. iOS and Android keep the number of unread messages on the app icon or tile until they are read.

Why? We can only speculate.

My boss has a unique problem and try as I might, I could not figure out the solution. She uses MS Outlook 2003.
When she receives emails they, of course go into her "inbox". If she opens them, reads them and deletes them, they disappear!
They don’t move to the delete folder and they are not in the “recover deleted emails” folder. They are GONE.
The strange thing is that if she deletes an email WITHOUT opening it, it goes into the deleted folder with no problem.
I have checked and double checked and triple checked the settings to see if there is something in there that is causing this but I’m stumped.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer:MS Outlook 2003 Emails Disappear!

The fact that unopened emails are being displayed in the Deleted Items folder while opened emails are "disappearing" suggests to me that there is some View setting that is filtering out emails that have been read.

Select the Deleted Items folder, and then go to View->Arrange By in the menu bar. Look under Custom.

If you have no luck after investigating all those options, maybe you'll need to restore Outlook's default configuration:

To restore Outlook views, toolbars, menus or settings, you need to reset the content of the OUTCMD.DAT file.

1. Exit Outlook;
2. Locate the OUTCMD.DAT file.
If you are running Windows XP and you installed Outlook on its default path, you can find the file in "C:\Documents and Settings\-USER-\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook", where "-USER-" if the name of your Windows login account. If not, search your local disk for the filename;
3. Rename the OUTCMD.DAT file to a different filename;
4. Restart Outlook.

Once restarted, Outlook should restore the default OUTCMD.DAT file from scratch and you should be able to use Outlook with its default view settings.Click to expand...

Hello all, I'm hoping that you could help me with this, I'm not very computer literate but seem to muddle by well enough until now.

I've recently bought a HP Pavilion and have installed Outlook 2010 and managed to figure it out as best I could, or so I thought.

But I was looking for some emails from the end of February and they've disappeared. My sent items from the same period are there but the recieved emails are not and any conversations from that period, the recived emails are away.

For the past couple of weeks I've had a user come up with a strange error.
We have Exchange 2007, and she is using outlook 2010 on windows 7 64 bit.
Some emails are not reaching her inbox, but there seems to be no reason as to what emails, or some will come in one day, but not the next.
According to the exchange server, the emails are getting coming in like usual, but they are not appearing on her machine. If I open her webmail after she should have received these emails and outlook was open at the time, they are missing from webmail as well. If I have outlook closed, but have webmail open, the message is received, and opening outlook after that sends the message to outlook as well. Also I can setup her account on other machines and it works there, so it is something specific to that machine.
So far, I have tried creating a new profile and removing her old one, reinstalling Microsoft office, then completely removing Microsoft office and scrubbing her profile from the registry before reinstalling. Thus far nothing has worked. I'm up to the point of completely reinstalling the machine, but do to the highly personalized programs on the computer, I am hesitant to do that unless completely necessary.
If anyone has any ideas even what the problem actually is, I would appreciate it.

Answer:Outlook 2010 causing emails to disappear

Are there any error messages in the message tracking logs on the server for that user? Are there any error messages in Event Viewer on the user's computer that might provide some clues? Do the senders get an NDR when they try to email this user? Is the user able to send mail using Outlook, or does that get stuck as well?
At first blush, it sounds like there's a problem with the services the Outlook client uses to contact the server and download email. Try running the connectivity analyzer tool on that particular machine:

I hope somebody can help. I seem to be having real email problems. There are some emails that seem to be pulled off the server, I can see the progress in the lower right hand corner of the screen, and then the emails don't show up in my inbox. It baffles me. The odd thing is that I can see the emails on my Treo. I am beginning to think that there must be a configuration problem between the applications I am using. Can somebody help. I have the following setup:

Outlook 2003
Treo Chattermail
Optimum Online

The other problem is that I cannot delete certain emails. Whenever I try it I get an error message that I already mentioned in a previous mail:
"The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists restart Outlook"
but this does not solve the problem. Those messages also "cannot be displayed in the Reading Pane", so I see nothing but a blank screen on the preview side of Outlook.

Any ideas?

Hope you guys can help with this issue. All of a sudden, incoming messages to the Inbox in Outlook disappear as soon as they are opened and read for the first time. Before you react, let me tell you:

the View is set on Messages, NOT Unread messages only
the Autoarchive is not the problem--no settings have been changed, and messages are not set to expire
Do you have any suggestions for more troubleshooting, or is my only option to delete the account and start over again? Would my messages re-load off the server? Or is this a situation where I need to contact the server--could the problem be on their end? Many thanks.

Answer:Messages Disappear from Inbox in Outlook 2007

Hi tgrover54

If you change the View to Unread then toggle it back to Messages, do the read messages appear?

Have you checked for any Rules that may be moving messages?

Send yourself a Test message. Give the subject line a unique name. If the message disappears after being opened, run a Search for it and see if it turns up in a location different than the Inbox.
Is this a home setup or a work computer using Exchange?
If the former, then the problem is on your end. Depending on how you have your options setup, you may or may not be leaving a copy of messages on the server.
If the latter, I would believe your messages are stored on your company's server, but it still sounds like it would be on your end.
Also, the Messages option can be changed, normally the Filter is off.
Click the drop down arrow on the View field and scroll down to Define Views... verify the options have the Filter off.
Highlight the View Name: Messages and click the Reset button.

I'm running Outlook 2007. I have noticed that when I create a distribution list in my contacts folder, I can use it for a while, but after a few days, it seems to disappear. What normally happens is I try to send an email to the distribution list. Autocompletion finds it ok, but when I hit the send button, I get the " An internal support function returned an error " message. If I click on the + in the to line, I get an error message: "The name or distribution list has been deleted and is no longer a valid Address Book entry. The operation failed. An object could not be found." Sure enough when I look in my contact folder, the distribution list is gone.

This is happened several times. I create DLs and then they randomly disappear.

I'm looking to send a bunch of files automatically to my customers. At the moment, I have around 100 files per day, which I have to identify, then attach manually to an email and send to each customer. As you can imagine, this is quite time consuming and I'd like to find a way to automate it.

The files do contain the name of the customer, but not their email address. Is there some way I could write a script in Outlook, which could find the name from the file, then match it up with the address book, create the email and then attach the file? I can program in Visual Basic, but it looks quite difficult to do with that. I know nothing about scripting in Outlook, but somebody has advised that that may be the best way forward.

I use OE 6 on my desktop running XP pro, but use Outlook 2007 on my laptop running XP home. I cannot receive attachments sent from my Outlook 2007 to my OE 6 when I send it to myself. They are stripped off, not even showing an attachment. The attachment comes through to other recipients as far as I know, INCLUDING my alternate email address (through at&t). So OE 6 receives the attachment when I send it from my default email account to my at&t account, but not when I send it to from and to my default account. I have checked with my email provider, who has checked the server (IMAP) and they do not see any problem--the attachment is on the server. I have already unchecked all potential blocks under the Security Tab--image blocking and attachment blocking--and am operating in the Internet Zone. And, as far as I know, I am receiving attachments from everyone else in the world. I know there are ways to work around this problem, but it is irritating and I have concerns that my email attachments to clients may be unknowingly blocked. Also, I cannot receive those attachments on my Blackberry either.

thank you in advance


Answer:how do i get emails from outlook express 6 into outlook 2007?

I don't use Outlook, but I'd think the general procedure would be to:

1: Export from Outlook Express to location X

2: Open Outlook, use the import function, and navigate to location X.

Is that what you are doing?

Can you export in more than 1 format? If so, try another format.

It's also a good idea to make manual copies of all of your Outlook Express files (dbx, etc) in case your corrupt the originals during the export/import process.

Email export and import functions haven't improved in the last 10 years, so welcome to reality. I hate changing email programs for that reason.

There are applications out there designed to convert DBX to PST, but I don't know if they are required.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

You should be able to do that through the options menu. I am using Outlook 2003 and here is the information from the help file. It may be different if you are using a different version of Outlook.

On the main Outlook screen Tools menu, click Options.

Click E-mail Options, and then click Tracking Options.

Select the "Process receipts on arrival" check box.

Select the "After Processing move receipts to" check box.

To select a folder other than Deleted Items, click Browse.​

I have been up and down the Internet about this and can't seem to find any useful help anywhere.

I am an admin at company and one of our users has an Outlook 2007 rule that I created for him. This rule will automatically turn itself off when ever it wants to; no rhyme or reason behind it that I can see.

The rule simply moves a copy of an email from an IMAP account to a folder on the exchange account.

This is setup on various other users accounts as well as mine and it doesn't seem to be affecting anyone else.

Any help would be grateful. If anyone requires any additional information, please let me know.

Hi guys,

Outlook 2007 is not send/receiving automatically. I am pretty sure its a profile issue rather than a PC issue as its only certain users that this does not work for.

Here are the solutions that i have tried and they have not worked.;en-us;312336&Product=out;EN-US;287677

I have also deleted both the local and roaming files and allowed outlook to re-create new ones but this has not fixed the issue.

Anybody have any ideas?

I have run into a problem that I have no idea how to troubleshoot. We have configured an Outlook 2007 client on a workstation that is located in one of our retail stores. Every 3 weeks or so I get a call from them saying that they are not able to receive email.

They receive an error from the incoming mail server.

When I look at the settings two fields have been changed.

1) The incoming name server is changed from "" to "localhost".

2) The username is changed from "corren" to "corren/".

When I make the change to set the incoming mail server back to and the username to corren it works.

Every time they have problems, this is the change I notice that has been made. I am 98.99999% certain that it is not a case of an employee changing the settings.

How does this happen? It seems to happen on it's own.

Hi there,

For a while I've been using Windows Live Mail, on Vista. It worked well for ages, but has recently refused to send mail. After giving up on fixing it, I set up Outlook instead. Same settings and accounts as WLM, a couple IMAP accounts and one HTTP (Hotmail account). Works fine, only problem is that Outlook doesn't automatically retrieve mail. I've set it so that it runs send/receive once a minute, which is okay, but I would rather emails come through when they're actually sent. My main qualm, however, is that even when send/receive is run, there is no notification for new mail. No popup message in the corner, no change in the tray icon, nothing. I just have to keep checking it, which is annoying.

Anyway to fix those two issues?

At the office, my work email receives emails when they're sent, and a popup box appears in the lower left corner. We run an Exchange server there, so mayhap that makes a difference.


Answer:Outlook 2007 - Automatically receive email

Actually I've just found that it does indeed have a new icon in the tray upon the receipt of a new message. So the 1 minute send/receive doesn't really bother me.

So I guess this can be closed now. Thanks!

My mom has multiple accounts in Outlook 2007.

Her personal account and the account she uses for our little orchestra to send sheet music.

Is it possible to make that in each subject automatically is [SHEETMUSIC] or something like that? Or automatically make the message line in the inbox yellow or something? She just wants to see quickly that it's a confirmation for a received part.



Answer:Automatically add subject line in Outlook 2007?

It is not clear to me - you are trying to sort incoming messages or outcoming.

To add specific subject line for newly created messages your mom can create a template and save that template whereever she wants or pin it somewhere and open template when she needs it.
In template you can predefine whatever you want - recepients, subject lines, text, appearance.

To sort incoming message, you can assign Rules to message and outlook will sort them, move in sub-folder, flag them etc...

I recently upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2007 under XP SP2. I have three accounts on the same POP3 server. After installation, it threw errors importing some of my rules and disabled the rest. Some of these rules (now bad) were for moving emails arriving from each account and moving them to the appropriate folder. Since these rules wouldn't import properly (and were disabled) it put all new messages in the same folder. OK, easy enough to fix.

However, whenever I logged on it would also download duplicates of all my messages. Over 5000 messages. Sometimes triplicates. I spent around a day paintsakingly removing these. It's difficult because if I remove the wrong one, it deletes the original from my POP server. In other words, if a particular message has two or three dupes, only ONE of them is truly associated with the original (on server) and therefore cannot be deleted locally. I can however safely delete the other local copies (the original remains on the server). The problem it can be impossible to tell which copy points to the original and which doesn't. It's necessary to archive all messages on my POP server for accessing on other systems so deleting these isn't an option.

I then deleted the old rules and added new rules for putting the messages from each account into their proper folders. I immediately discovered what appears to be a new bug in 2007. Of the three accounts, when I make a rule to move messages received from account#3 and hit... Read more

Answer:Duplicate emails in Outlook 2007

Does anyone know if there's a way to upload email (intact) back to the POP server?

I had been happily using outlook 2007 with outlook connector to manage my hotmail account. A few days ago because my account had been hacked I had to get the password reset via Microsoft.

When I got my reset details, I went to my email via windows live hotmail and everything looked OK.

However, when I went into outlook, it would not accept the new password and I decided to set it up as a new account. This all went very well but I noticed that the new account was not showing up to date emails - the last several days emails were missing. (I have also checked via windows live and they are now missing there also). I have clicked on ?send/receive all? but it seems to be taking forever to do things. That process eventually completed but the missing emails have not been restored.

Anyone got any advice? Should I delete all the accounts and start again ? would this be simple?

Hi all,

I've read over some of the other similar threads and couldn't find my answer...

Every time I send out an email to someone with outlook, it sends a random number of invisible emails as well. Naturally, I assumed this was a trojan or a virus, or some type of malware and took steps to find and remove it, running SuperAntiSpyware, malwarebytes anti-malware and AVG 8, all of which turn up blank.

Other threads were answered stating that it could be read receipts, but I do not send those out even when requested. I know for a fact emails are being sent from one of my accounts because I am getting signed up to tons of news letters that state my IP and what day/time I signed up for the crap, even though I didn't send anything to those addresses. Furthermore, I am getting bounced emails being returned, as well as reply to spam that was supposedly sent from my account.,

I could use some help with this!

I can't flag emails with Outlook 2007. Is there a setting i have missed setting up to do this?

Answer:Outlook 2007 + Flagging Emails


No its likely done a slightly different way in Outlook 2007 than older versions of Outlook, some notable changes to Outlook 2007 in discontinued features and modified functions

But I tend to flag mine up using the two changed features, one is in that you can flag your emails with colours to highlight different types of email, work, depts, personal etc using the Category colours

Then you can add time scales as in the To Do flags

Gone is the way you could in Outlook 2003 and below in colouring the flags with blue, green, orange etc its now the Category options. I looked but couldnt see where these two options could be turned off or on, so they IIRC are defaulty on.

I have been playing around in a limted way another option to sort and flag emails but this application while free is still in beta and by invite, although they do send invites out very quickly, its called Clear Context and maybe worth a look, does however have a very quick splash screen pop up each time you load Outlook, not had time to see if this can be disabled as yet.

I prepared an email to a non-existant email address as the first email in the outbox, then replied to my emails as normal. And it works. Since then I have kept the "first email" in the outbox and its all working ok. Not an elegant fix as such, but frankly I can't be bothered to fix it proberly. Good luck, hope it works for you too.

I have a user who gets a lot of read receipts. Is there a way to set up Outlook 2003 so that once he clicks on them, they go directly to the delete folder, and not have to be manually deleted each time? They get over a hundred each day.

Answer:Way to automatically remove read receipts in Outlook 2003

Welcome to the forum.

Setup a rule to have them automatically move them to a folder. When he is done with them he can then do a CTR+A which will select all of them and then hit Delete to delete them and throw them into the deleted items folder. You can also do a Shift+Delete to permanently delete them and bypass the Deleted Items folder all-together.

Does anyone know why my gmail IMAP doesn't automatically connect when I first open Outlook? I have several acounts connected via imap and for some reason it is just this one account that doesn't automatically connect via imap. Any settings through gmail I need to adjust?

Hi Everyone,

I am having an issue with messages not automatically showing up in Outlook. I use Outlook 2007 (with all relevant Service Packs, and updates), and whenever I look at my emails now I see the following message instead of the "message content".

When I click on "Download the rest of this message now" I can see the message, after an inconvenient delay, however I would like to revert back to my old settings so that I can avoid this time wasting step.

I have followed the link below in an attempt to fix this issue -

What I am finding is that my settings in Outlook are correct, the option to "Download the rest of this message now", is not ticked for any of my mailbox folders.

I anticipate that there could be an incorrect registry entry, or perhaps a recent update has caused this strange behaviour.

At any rate I am at a loss, and any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

I am having problems with Outlook 2007 automatically forcing line breaks. In the picture below, I didn't hit Enter once during that middle section and it still forces the breaks. Would anyone happen to know why?

I am on an Exchange server, so I sent an email from Outlook 2007 and now I'm on a Mac (using Entourage) so that's how I'm viewing it.
