Lost all my saved emails


Brendan Hanley

I recently had a problem with my computer and I had to erase everything from
my computer and reinstall everything.

I use virgin email but have outlook/windows mail connected to it. All my
virgin emails are tranferred to outlook/windows mail.

I saved my emails, in various folders I created, within the inbox folder.

When I have started up windows mail now all my old emails have disappeared.

Would anyone have a clue where they are?

download / remove all mail from the server, you could have selected the
option, within your mail setup, to keep a copy on the server. Or you could
have used imap to setup your mail account, assuming virgin supports imap -
(imap mail remains on the server)
