Outlook Express problem

New Email
When I send myself a test message, it goes to my depleted folder instead of the inbox. Other outgoing emails get sent properly to then recipients.

It sounds like a junk email, spam filter, or something similar is automatically filing it into the deleted folder.

Test messages can appear to be spammy to many spam filters.

Try sending a test message that has more to the subject and body than the word test.

Subject: Is the project done?

Body: Almost, the project will be done on Tuesday!

Did this information help to answer the question?

Hi Ike,

Did the email send and come back before going to deleted messages or did it go directly there without sending?

Raymond:

It went directly to the delete folder after sending without stopping at the inbox.

Is it possible that it sent and your have your sent items folder set incorrectly?

Try sending a test email to example@emailquestions.com

I'm interested to see if we get a copy in addition to it showing up in your deleted messages folder.

Hello,

I received the test message with the contents:

This is a test. Email to myself always shows up correctly in the sent folder (as well as the delete folder).

Try checking your message rules to see if you have a mail rule that is filtering the sent email into your deleted folder :
