  erkmatrix 12:04 15 Sep 2004

Hi this morning I had outlook express open while I was working on something else and it flashed up with outlook express has occurred a error and needs to shut or something along them words so it shut didn't really think anymore of it until now just opened it again and my whole inbox had gone, some very important emails are in there with usernames and passwords for various business sites.

Please help anyone, is there anyway of retrieving them.

??did you leave a copy of them on your server??

If you do a search for *.dbx that should bring up were your emails are.

If they are OK and you can open them, its worth copying and pasting them to a word or text document and saving them, much safer in-case OE goes all fickle on you.

I don't have them saved on my server I don't think, I did a search for *.dbx and *.eml on my c-drive and couldn't find them it even didn't come up with all the emails that are in outlook express in the deleted and sent boxes which are still all there it was just the inbox that seemed to vanish, is there anywhere I could search somewhere else to see if I could find them. Seems so weird for them just to vanish totally .

os? if XP or ME system restore would probably work.

tried the system restore yeah though that would work but sadly it didn't restore them.

Could this be some sort of virus eating them up
