Windows live mail files vanished

  Notageek 08:48 17 Dec 2015

I had to delete an e-mail being sent via one of my accounts from the Windows Live Mail Outbox, which I found in the system following guidance from Microsoft Help. However, as a result all my e-mails in all that account folders also vanished (but not those in my other account folders). I use a back-up service, and have downloaded the lost files from there, with their help, onto the desktop. However, when I try to copy them across into the relevant Windows Live Mail folders in ..../Microsoft/Windows Live Mail they appear there correctly, but when I then open Windows Live Mail they are not displayed there, but at the same time vanish from the .../Windows Live Mail folders. Any idea what is happening and how I can get my files back? New messages coming in to the account are displayed normally.

Problem solved - I have found the messages elsewhere on Windows Live Mail
