MS Outlook - last 6 months emails wiped

  Brucemac 07:18 17 Nov 2004

I started up Outlook this morning and unusually it asked me to accept import from Outlook express, perhaps foolsihly I clicked yes. Now there are no emails after about April in the Outlook indexes, also it keeps asking to use Business Contact manager, Does anyone know what has happened, where I might find my emails past April and how I restore Outlook to what it was yesterday?
PS Have run upto date Norton, nothing found.

if you have xp or me you could try system restore and it might get it all back.

Which Outlook have you got, if it's up to date it will have abackup facility look in there. Also look in Outlook Express, has it exported and not Imported.As far as I am aware (I don't have Office Pro) there is no business contact manager associated with Outlook, Have you scanned using Adaware etc and your AV.

First time I have tried system restore - dog's b.......s! Got everything back ok, however, on opening MS Outlook it again prompted me to import etc and thus change account set up, this time I said no.
