Outlook Express lost mail

  bogs 19:59 25 Jul 2003

Hi' I have just noticed for the past 6 days none of my sent mail appears in the sent Items box. I know they go, as I've watched them leave Outbox and double checked by mailing myself and all arrived in seconds. But NONE appear in Sent Items. Can anyone help?...It would be much appreciated.

Assuming that you are using Outlook Express, Tools/Options, Send tab, tick "Save copy of sent messages in the "Sent Items" folder".

Have you checked. Tools, Options. Send tab. First item save sent items in sent items. Is it ticked?

Many thanks for suggesting the tool/options/send route, but I've aleady checked that and the save copy sent messages to sent items box is checked. Sorry, should have mentioned it before. Could the problem be caused by a bug of some sort?

Look in the View option for the Sent folder - it should be set to "All Messages"

Thanks, I've checked the View option and it's set to All Messages. The trouble started on the 17th of this month,before that all was fine. After trying everything I could think of I even ran Systems Restore, but the problem remains. Think it must be a bug of some kind.
