SYMPTOMS

Outlook users running the OST Integrity Checker may see mismatch errors reported for the Sent Items folder. The error message takes the following form:
10:14:36 Scanning folder Sent Items. 10:14:36 The message with the subject '<subject of message>' in your mailbox on the Microsoft Exchange Server does not match the message in the offline folder file.

CAUSE

The change numbers that are used to compare the revisions of items in the offline folder (.ost) file and the Microsoft Exchange Server information store do not match. The items do match, but the number is not properly compared.

RESOLUTION

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. However, this hotfix is intended to correct only the problem that is described in this article. Apply this hotfix only to systems that are experiencing this specific problem.

If the hotfix is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, submit a request to Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the hotfix.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request.

Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the hotfix is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a hotfix is not available for that language.

WORKAROUND
