As Marc pointed out, that's a shithouse (as we would say in Australia)
description of the problem.  You used a "cute name" for Microsoft Outlook
and didn't give us any versions of either Cyrus or Outlook - let alone
OS versions or anything else that might narrow down the problem.

I agree with Marc - try enabling telemetry and see what's happening at
the protocol level.

Also - how have you confirmed that the message is on the server?  File on
disk, or via IMAP?  It may be flagged \Deleted even if it exists...
