I use Windows XP and quite suddenly Outlook Express when selected has nothing but an orange searchbar where e-mails previously appeared. Total of files in my inbox appears as usual at lower left but there seems no way I can view contents of the inbox, or of sent, or deleted files. I have of course tried re-booting the system but I still can only get this OS screen. All security systems are up and running and machine is virus free. If there are any replies to this query I will be unable to read e-mail notification but will have to re-enter this PCADVISOR site and hope there has been some response.
Thank you VoG for your message. There is another option, as I remembered after making my original posting, and that is to go to System Restore. This I did and it solved the problem. However View > layout and then ticking Folder List is noted and I have done this too so that the fault should not re-occur.
