Extracted and imported all mailboxes for users and everything works fine... The import of the old mailbox completed and synced with exchange.

Now when Outlook is open, theres a message in the status bar "waiting to update this folder".

It would just wait there for maybe 15 minutes then any new emails waiting would come in. Strange thing is, it only happens when the inbox is selected. If you see a lot of Conflicts or Failures this is the case.

If I select any other folder (including sub-folders of the inox) the status is up to date. Move all the emails from the Inbox into another folder. If the inbox is empty but still exhibits the probem then the email is orphaned and invisible to the GUI. If the inbox does sync correctly your bad email is in the folder you moved the inbox emails.

I have tried the usual - deleting the offline cache, rebuilding the outlook profile etc. Export the new folder to pst Export all email but the inbox to pst. At this point it woudl be a move one email at a time then sync until it is located. There are no sync issues when I check through the OWA.
