Can read emails in Outlook 2007 automatically disappear?

I received an email from a friend last Saturday. I read it on Sunday from my Outlook inbox but did nothing with it. On Monday I went to reply but it had disappeared. I have repeatedly checked deleted items and everywhere else in Outlook and can't find it. Someone else who used my laptop on Sunday denies having done anything with the email. Can it have really disappeared without human intervention? Thanks in anticipation....

Depending on your email provider, and the Outlook settings, you may still be able to access the email on the provider's webmail page. For example, if you read BT emails through Outlook, going to BT.com and logging in there will show all emails received. BUT, if Outlook is not setup to leave mail on the server, they may not be there.

check you have got the 'view' set to show all messages (read as well as unread)
