I had a similar set of event a few months back and discovered 2 things

cleaning but at that time, I did not have the “Source Mailbox” 
column enabled so when cleaning, I ended up permanently deleting a lot 
of my Sent Items.

I have no idea if either of these relate to your issue - just sharing my 

Good luck…
