If you're trying to retrieve your previous emails be sure to check Outlook's Data File management by clicking File. Make sure it is pointing to the right location of the Outlook.pst file.
Be sure you know the exact path of the .pst file for your profile. You can simply copy the .pst file from profile to profile. You might also need the .NK2 file for keeping your previous recipients addresses. I assume you know the actual paths of these files. One thing more the address book needs to be setup everytime you copy to another profile.

When you start Outlook Express, the contents of your Inbox folder may be missing. The contents may be replaced with a new first-run "Welcome to Microsoft Outlook Express" message. You do not receive a warning that the email messages have been deleted, and the missing email messages are not in the Deleted Items folder.

If you cannot delete email in Outlook Express and the program crashes frequently the problem might be because of corrupt storage folders - typically, the Inbox and the Deleted Items. As you may know, the email program uses the Inbox to store all incoming email, Sent Items for the messages you have sent and Delete Items for the messages that have been discarded. Now if you cannot delete an email in Outlook Express the cause of your troubles might be faultly or corrupt Inbox or Delete Items folders.
Fixing these two folders is not difficult and for that we need to find out where these folders reside on the hard disk. In the Outlook Express program, go to "Tools" -> "Options" and move to the "Maintenance" tab. You'll find a "Store Folder..." button; click on it. This brings up a small window with the path to the storage folders directory. Use the left mouse button and click to select the entire path. Now right-click and choose the "Copy" option. Close the Outlook Express program.
Open the "Run" program from the "Start" menu and paste the full path (CONTROL-V or right-click -> Paste). The Outlook Express storage folders are hidden files. You may need to force Windows to show them. From the top menu, select "Tools" -> "Folder Options" and then from the "View" tab, check "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Now simply select the Deleted Items.dbx file and send it to the recycle bin. Don't worry; Outlook Express will create a new one when you start it again.
If you still cannot delete the email after manually removing the Deleted Items.dbx file, I suggest you do the same for the inbox storage folder. However, deleting that will also remove all of your store email messages. So first select and drag all the messages in a temporary folder (create on the Desktop); you can then drag them back to the inbox when you open Outlook Express again and it creates the inbox afresh.
if this is trough outlook ect check you deleted folder, if you have web based option but you need to check with your provider some only keep emails on their servers for 30 days. Also if using outlook check in setting for message validility period
