How do you access Gmail? Using a computer I normally access it through a browser (webmail) but on my phone there is a synchronised copy held on the device. Is it a local copy that you have lost? If so, you should still have the messages saved as webmail.
Great idea, but unfortunately it didn't work. I used system restore, back to a few days when everything was working properly.
Lotvic, I am using Gmail directly, via firefox. Never had a problem before. My system is XP. Not sure which version. I was taking off unwanted messages when the system cleared everything...except some stuff that I last saw about 3 years ago! The link you sent me did not work at all, I'm afriad.
Woolwell, I use Gmail directly. I CAN use Thunderbird, I think, but that too is erratic. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just won't.
Beginning to look as if I will have to upgrade to Win 7, which I hate.
Thanks everyone for trying to help/
You seem to be using Webmail Gmail. As per Woolwell says: Everything will be in the Bin folder so open the Bin and select all the emails then click on the icon that looks like a folder which will bring up a menu of folders you can move them to.
(note: the move folder icon will not appear until after you have ticked/selected some emails)
