Outlook Express 6.0 Deletes my Saved Messages

  [DELETED] 16:48 14 Aug 2003


I am currently running Outlook Express 6.0
When I download new mail messages from Hotmail any messages I have kept in the Inbox form previous days get deleted. I have lost some important mail and don't know what is happening or why.

Any Help Please.

I can't answer your problem but why not highlight the messages you want to save and go to File and 'Save as...' and save them to a separate folder in your docs or somewhere.

NB. In OE there may be a setting you need to change under: Tools/Options/Maintenance tab.

Thanks watchful... I can do that but would like to resolve the problem as it has only recently started and I dont know why... bugs me. I checked the settings and it all looks OK.

You may not be losing them, just losing sight of them.

Go to View - Current View and ensure "Show all messages" is selected.
