    Using Outlook 2007, after reading a new email, it shows read. When

    navigating to another folder and returning to the Inbox, the messasge has

    disappeared from the inbox. Searching for the message shows it present in

    the inbox. It cannot be be re-read except through the searching process.

    Sounds like you might have modified your view to hide read items. You can

    either reset your view via View > Current View > Define Views or start

    Microsoft Outlook 1 time with the /cleanviews command line switch. I will

    warn you that if you use the /cleanviews command line switch, it will reset

    all built-in view back to their defaults and delete all custom views.

    I should have been a bit clearer. Not every email "disappears" after being

    read, and those that do, don't immediately disappear, only after navigating

    away from the inbox. I will attempt to reset the defined views, however.

    Thank you. Bradwin

    Are you using Exchange server mailbox, a pop or imap account?

    I have the same issue and it seems to happen random and not very frequently.

    Please let me know if you have an answer.

    I have had the same problem with Outlook 2007 (on a vista computer) and a

    Gmail account using IMAP. If it matters, that email is IMAP'd to another

    computer winth Outlook 2003, and a Blackberry. However it doesn't happen to

    all emails, and the Blackberry nor the outlook 2003 ever delete the messages.

    It just seems to happen randomly. Sometimes the emails are moved to the

    junk folder, but that is less than 10% of the time. The rest they just

    disappear completely. At first I didn't believe my fiance when she told me

    it was happening, but when using her computer I saw it with my own eyes.

    Please offer any advise on this issue

    I have a user with the same problem.

    On rare occasions, most of her read messages dissappear from her inbox (outlook 2007, exchange 2003 server).

    She also has an iPhone which receives incomong mails.

    Has anybody got a solution for this strange problem?
