Lost Leopard mail from iMa

I have suddenly lost my Leopard mail from my iMac. I cannot find a mail file in the applications folder or on my backup disc (usually get our old friend error 10657). when I can open the mail file it only contains a text file.
There was a recent post in CNET suggesting that the problem with the mail could be solved by asking some one using Mac OSXv10.5 to e mail a copy of the mail.app. file.
Has anyone tried this?
Anyone willing to Email a clean copy of the application so I can give it a try

thanks
John

I am afraid i gave in and found an Apple repair company. They sorted it out at a high cost but I cannot function with all my interests without a machine that I can trust. The engineer said he found my E mail in the waste bin. No idea how it got there or how I could recover it. I had look at the contents of this bin several times and never saw anything resembling mail.

Thanks for your concern folks,
John

HOW DO I FIX LOST MAILS TOTALLY AFTER USING REPAIR TOOL?


It seems that the dbx file size is reduced either because: 1. The repair tool modify and reduce its size, remove the emails. or 2. The last time when you restart Outlook Express, it reduce the dbx file size and remove the emails. If you still have the original large dbx file, then you can recover all the emails inside it with OE-Mail Recovery at http://www.oemailrecovery.com/inbox-repair.html
This tool will never modify the original dbx file, instead, it will output the recovered emails into an output folder so that you can either open or import it back to Outlook Express. If you do not have the original large dbx file, then it is still possible to recover your emails. As long as you have stored the .dbx file on your local disk or drive, the email data may still exist on your disk/drive. You can you can search Google utility to scan the whole disk/drive and recover the emails for you.

Lost instuction manual to back up toshiba laptop


Try using BurnAware free CD/DVD burning software. You can select the files you want to backup and burn them as a data disk.

Doing a full backup of a computer will copy all applications and data and will consume many DVDs. All you really need to copy is your data, such as your photo folder, music folder, email folder, etc.

Outlook1.pst file disappeared when installing updated drivers for LogitechQuickCam. I think they are related as QuickCam has some kind of mail interface. Can I get my e mails back? Jim Moore


could be a corrupted mail file,

just track down the folder where the file is 'normally' found, c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook (XP)

or c:\users\user\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook (Vista, 7)

make a copy of the file just in case, note the location you save the backup.
. now go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

and run ScanPST.
navigate to the location where your PST is stored and click Start.

You have the option here to create a backup .bak file as well.
when this completes, you can try to open the PST file in Outlook again , via File > Open > Outlook Data File.

You can use this same method to scan .OST files that might be errored, or corrupted as well. OSTs are used with Exchange server accounts , also known as Offline STorage Files.

SUDDENLY LOST MOST OF MY EMAIL CONTACTS ON BOTH MY COMPUTERS


Hi, it seems like you are using IMAP protocol for your mail settings. The good thing about IMAP is that you can see the same emails listing for your imac, and your macbook. The bad thing about IMAP is that when you accidentaly delete emails on whatever computer, the others won't see them either.
Please check in Mail's trash folders for all your computers, and check if the mails were not simply moved to another folder

Unable to open backed-up files. Error code 10657


I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.

OUTLOOK EXPRESS BACKUP FILE


BAK and BK files usually are backups of other documents or files.

The BAK (or BK) file extension normally represents files that are backup copies of other file. There is no 'standard' file format for BAK files. BAK files can represent virtually anything.

This link will take you to an on-line storage of software I have. Download and run easyrecovery pro. Select E-Mail repair. Select Outlook express.
