Switched laptop on this morning [Vista 32 bit] and found that all my e mails, in box, sent, deleted, and all extra folders were gone. Most mysterious. any observations anyone, please?????

First thing to try is a reboot.
Switch laptop off (not restart) and then switch back on again.

This sometimes rectifies all sorts of probs so is first on list to try.

All gone again, those that I've downloaded since the problem became apparent. Did a re-boot with an unsuccessful system restore. Am going to do a factory re-set now, was going to anyway, laptop getting too slow. Thanks for reply AB68

Always the first place to look if files have been deleted or disappeared.
