Question about Microsoft Outlook Express
I got a message from outlook express about compressing files. I forget whether it asked permission, or just started compressing. Anyway, I am missing the last 6 months of inbox mail. Oddly enough, nothing else is missing - I have all the inbox mail before those 6 months, going back several years. And I have all the sent mail during those 6 months.
I'd like to locate the missing mail.
Do you mean that your inbox has many years of mails and only the 6 months mails went away somehow?
Start OE, click on Tools -> Options -> Maintenence. Then double click the Store Folder path and press Ctrl-C to copy it to clipboard.
Start -> Run then press Ctrl-V and press enter
Check there in case your mails were in different folders. In case there are any numbered files in this folder like inbox.dbx .... then we know that is the problem.
There are ways to get the data but first you need to identify.
