    E-Mail delivers to Deleted Items folder

    We had a shared mailbox where all the mail sent to the mailbox delivered to the deleted items folder. To resolve this do the following: 1. Open Exchange Management Shell 2. Type Get-CalendarProcessing “mailboxname” | fl and press enter 3. If AutomateProcessing shows AutoAccept in the returned results then run the next cmdlet 4. Set-CalendarProcessing “mailboxname” -automateprocessing none 5.
