OE6 mail going to 'deleted'.

XP Home SP3
For some time now my son's mail has been going straight to my deleted box.
I have tried to create a rule to send his mails to my in box.
When I set up the rule the in box option is greyed out. The first active box is the deleted box.
His from line is his christian name so I set that as the 'from' together with his Tiscali address.
I already have nine message rules which I have studied and there is nothing in them to associate any with my son's details.
Is there a solution p;ease.
Can it be the server?

I don't see how it could be - but I would suggest you once again examine your existing nine message rules, as that's probably where the problem lies. The rule doesn't need to mention your son's name - for example it could just mention Tiscali.

A bit of a bore, but I would take note of all the rules, and then delete them, and see if the problem still occurs.

I'll try just Tiscali first.
The other option is as you say a bit tedious.

Look in your Blocked Senders list, it may have been added in error.

A very good point

Yes--it had got in there somehow (by me obviously)
Have renoved it.
Many thanks.
I didn't realise 'blocking' sent it to 'deleted'.
Will wait for a test from my son and then resolve.
Cheers. mp
