emails vanish from outlook express inbox

My emails keep vanishing shortly after downloading them in to my inbox. They are not in the deleted items folder and I have checked all other folders.

The odd thing is that when I search for them by clicking 'find' they show up as being in the inbox.

What is going on?

All is not lost however as I keep them on the server for seven days and can access them via web mail but cannot get outlook express to download them again.

Does anyone have any suggestions or work arounds?

That looks very helpful, I will work my way through it.

Forgive me if this is a silly suggestion, but do you have any subfolders in your inbox but don't have them all showing?

I only ask because I've been caught out in this manner

try this
In Outlook Express > View > Current View > make sure there is a dot in front of 'Show All Messages'

It's not a silly question, exdragon, and I do have sub folders and I have checked them all

Lotvic, thank you, you solved it. For some reason the dot had moved down to 'show unread messages'. I feel a real idiot.
