In O/S go to tools/options and then the general and security tabs and make changes

where in there does it allow you to unblock and reasign email to inbox

Highlight the message in question Click "Message" at the top then Create a Rule.

which rule do i create to reasign emails to inbox? it seems to want me to create a new folder

Tick Where the from line contains people, then Tick Move it to a specified folder, then choose your Inbox if thats where you want them to go.. I don't know if this is the correct way as I don't use OE but it should work. You can try it anyway. and you can always change it back if it's not what you want

You probably have a mail rule set up to redirect to your deleted folder.

Look in Tools/Message Rules/Mail for it.

thank you for your help guys its sorted.I stumbled across it Tools-message rules-mail close that box that brings up another box which allows you to unblock senders and stops emails going direct to deleted items.

Thanks for that, even though I don't use it it's good to know.
