Question about Microsoft Outlook 2003 for PC

Outlook 2003 restores deleted email files

On several occasions Outlook has restored old files that I had previously deleted. For example, Sent files that I have deleted sometimes come back in weird ways and repopulate my "Sent Items" folder. This happened again Saturday. When I left the house I had 71 messages in my "Sent Items" folder. When I returned a few hour later I had over 3000 in the folder -- all of which were more than 15 months old -- messages I have deleted and deleterd from "Deleted Items" folder several times. Thanks, Frank

    All messages from my Outlook Express Sent Items Folder have been deleted, how do I get them back?

    basically like the others have said. I open Outlook and suddenly it is receiving 2300 emails- an insane amount for my small business. Look closer and it is all the emails I have ever received and read and deleted already. Why on earth does this happen?

Thats very strange,

Please open your outlook 2003. Then go on Deleted items, Rt click on properties.

Then check the option if you have done Restore defaults, then uncheck it.

I deleted outlook Express. It is gone! How do I get it back/re-install it? Doing the control panel thing just isn't working.

Try and do the system restore, that might bring it back. And also look into your recent documents

I accidentally deleted emails out of my archived

You may look to see if they are in the deleted files or the recycling bin in the program. If so there should be an option to recover then, whether it is a click or a drag on the file to move it.
