Hi - I'm using Outlook 2003 and was speaking to my bank in order to get my security details reset. The girl sent me an email, which I saw arrive, along with 2 or 3 others - then they all vanished. She sent it again but I wasn't quick enough to select it before it too disappeared.
Not in the junk box and when I did a search for what she told me was the 'From' address - no trace in any folders. I sent myself a couple of test messages which arrived, and I don't have a black list set up. I've also received emails from the bank recently.
When I checked the laptop, they were all there.
Does anyone know if I've reset something somewhere?
I'm no expert but reading what you have said suggests that your PC and Laptop were both on-line at the same time.
It strikes me that your e-Mails, initially, downloaded to the PC and were then forwarded directly to the Laptop. Now the mechanism for this, I've never set it up as I didn't use my laptop to access e-Mail, is I believe a comparatively simple part of Outlook.
Thanks for the replies. The laptop wasn't on until I had the sudden thought that they might be there. I've got Outlook 2003 on the desktop and Live Mail on the laptop - never had any problems until this morning!
I did try a post here earlier to say that the notification timed at 12.28 had arrived in the laptop but not the desktop, but I had the 'Wait' button but I gave up waiting. I see Graphicool1's email is now visible on the desktop, but his is the only notification I've got.
I received other emails (from myself and a friend) with no problem, so I guess it's yet another one of life's little mysteries.
