Hi,

If you require a managed response to your problems then it would be ideal lodging a support ticket so that you can provide the relevant data required for a technician to investigate. There have not been updates to version 6.x for a long time and therefore will not include the extensive work that has been done to IMAP in version 9 (performance improvements and bug fixes).There are no scheduled release dates for patches to version 6 at this point in time and therefore it would be beneficial looking into upgrading to version 9 so that you have all the latest fixes and updates to IMAP and reassess your problems from there.

Answering your question; you can open the IMAP activity and debug log files and review them although this will be time-consuming and tedious without knowing the UID's of the messages that were deleted etc. The client will also need to have troubleshooting logging enabled to associate the client logs with the IMAP server log files. There is an audit option you can enable within the "Localhost" properties window under the "Audit" tab in the administration console. Tick the option for "Event auditing is enabled for services". This will allow web mail users to view recent major activity related to their account and log if messages were deleted by other services.

I have had a similar problem (or the same) with a couple of users, randomly. We were running ME enterprise 8.53 and after upgrading to latest 8.61 I did not receive more complains so far. I have also seen deletions (Expunge) in ME audit but could not identify why messages were deleted. Before upgrading to the latest version of ME I have tried changing from Thunderbird to Outlook on users' side with no effect though.

As per my findings during imap account test on outlook and smartphone. whenever the imap user moved or delete emails than it generates

"IMAP EXPUNGE command on Folder: INBOX removed xx items(s)"

but there is something missing in audit logs that there must be a destination folder mentioned either delete or move items from and to.
