help - can't see my old emails in my WinMail inbox!!



hi there

Up until yesterday lunchtime my email inbox on Windows Mail (I have Vista)
showed my old emails as well as my new mails. then suddenly all my old
emails disappeared and I can only see new emails from yesterday lunchtime!!

Help!! my emails have vanished - how do I get them back?

I use AOL - when I check my AOL via webmail i can still see the old emails
so know they exist. so why have they disappeard from Windows Mail?

I have several folders set up on my AOL Windows Mail accont so don't want to
have to set up a new windows mail account as I will lose allmy folders. And
my account settings are set to "view all mail".

even wehn I press "send & receive" none of my old inbox emails are being
shown up.

thanks regards

She said "my account settings are set to "view all mail"."
First of all, it's not an account setting, it is a folder setting that has to
be set individually for every folder.
Secondly, that setting doesn't say "view all mail".

She can download the messages off the server again if she sets up a new copy
of the account and then downloads from that. Once done, she can delete that
copy of the account. Otherwise, she can try searching for *.eml and see if
the messages can be located that way.



Just reading between the lines . . . . . From what she posted I surmised
she's noted in her accounts' settings that they are checked to "include when
receive or sync", and, since "Show all messages" is on the "View" menu item,
I felt she made her point . . . . . just didn't think y'all picked up on it
in her post (i.e. speed-reading). Not every "general" PC user is precisely
"PC" when it comes to talking the talk . . . . .
