Do a search for Inbox.* If there's another one around, other than the presumably new empty one, then you can import mails from it (and the other folders.

Note that emails are not individual files - all the emails in a *box* (eg the Inbox) are held in one humungous database file.

If you don't find them, then I fear they are lost forever.

There are various ways to backup your e-mails. The biggest problem is that, when you reinstall OE all versions of the file are updated -not just the version on your C:\ drive but nay other version the software can see. The only escape is to use off-line storage or proprietary software
