e-mails lost

This may be a daft question but here goes.
I'm an NTL user and when I logged on this morning my in-box was cleared out. I know it's a bit vague, but, any ideas.

What is your operating system...eg Windows XP?
Do you use Outlook Express or Outlook or go to the NTL web site and check your mail there?

Sorry Andy, I should have been more specific. I'm using Windos XP and Outlook Exress. I did find "some" mail in outlook express and found that when I read them they disappeared. Strange?

I also go to NTL's site for my mail but there's never anything in the anymore the all seem to go to Outlook Express.

Outlook Express > Tools > Options > General tab, untick the box 'Send and receive messages at startup' and untick the box 'Check for new messages every ** minute(s) '

Then email will only be sent and collected from your account on the NTL server when you click on the 'Send/Recv' button on the top toolbar.

Outlook Express > Tools > Internet Accounts > Mail > *(your name)* @ntlworld.com > Properties > Advanced > at the bottom of this there is a section 'Delivery' and a box that you can put a tick in for 'Leave a copy of messages on server' (if you want to)

In OE - go to View - Current View - and make sure it's ticked to "Show all Messages"

Otherwise only some will show (maybe you've got it set to show only Unread Messages?)

also see this thread click here as it would seem ntl have some problems at moment

Lotvic, thanks for that I'll let you know how I fair. However having read your second append it certainly looks like NTL have, indeed, some problems. I lost a whole page of e-mails and when I 'phoned the 'hinderence' desk I got some woman who said that they have no control over my e-mails and it must be something on my computer. Yeah, right I may be pretty new to the home networking game but I've got 32 years of IBM experience behind me as, a consultant engineer fpr the past 18 years, IBM use Lotus Notes (having bought the company) as an e-mailer and if I were to loose any of my e-mails or mistakenly deleted them then the Note police (admin chappies) could recover up to a weeks worth quite quickly. So the woman on the 'hinderence' desk need a bit more info or training. She sounded like she was in Bangalore which may explain a feew things. :-) By the way, anybody looking for a good engineer as I've been made redundand as part of IBM's latest cull.
