On opening OE yesterday I discovered my front page has disappeared i.e. the page showing folder lists etc. Toolbars are still there - my husband also has an account and his front page is fine.
All my mails are in tact - I just can't see where they are.
I am able to send and receive mails (I have to go into the find facility and ask for mails received today in order to find out who has sent me what!) - Replying etc. is fine - I can create a mail as the toolbar is still there I just cannot see the folder list. This happened to me just over a year ago but I can't remember how I fixed it or even if it fixed itself. I couldn't see a similar problem so hope I am not repeating this.
I am using Windows XP Pro SP2 - I also downloaded Internet explorer 7 to see if a new version of OE might help (I am using v6 of OE) - I also use Outlook for task management and contact details but not email and now it is telling me when I open it up that version 4 or higher of OE is required - so Outlook is not seeing the OE that is there any more. Thanks in anticipation. Sue Tait
Thanks for tips - however - have tried system restore three times going back a week ultimately. In layout all the relevant boxes were checked as I know how I like the front page to look but still does not work
So presumably you are "stuck" on the Inbox with your messages in view, but no means of clicking on other folders?
One thing you could try - it might sound strange but it can sometimes work. If you go to View/Layout as above, and then remove the ticks from the boxes. Click apply and OK, and then go back to Layout and put back the ticks you want and Apply/OK
