    Depends. If you are using Windows Mail I wouldnt. Its very unstable. I
    its Outlook 2007 depends on whether your email account is a pop accoun
    or an Imap account. If its an imap account you are just clicking on th
    wrong link. I dont think you can recover lost emails but Outlook 200
    and 2007 under the help tab click "repair". Works great hope tha

  4. It helps if you explain your issue by using all that white space
    in the body of the message instead of trying to cram everything
    into the subject line.

    Open the Inbox folder, then look near the upper right corner.
    Does it say "Hide Read Messages" or "Show All Messages"?
    You want the latter setting for what is known as the 'Current View'.
    Each folder saves its current view setting, so check that setting in
    every folder.

    Its not an issue thats just sugarcoating what it really is which is

    possible solutions lets wait to see if the person says which version i
    is they have a PROBLEM with

  6. I have Microsoft Windows, Vista Premium. I have emails disappearing
    from the Inbox. View says ALL MESSAGES.
    There are no rules. I searched all files for the missing emails. They
    disappear when they first come in and after only being viewable for a
    second or two.

  7. Disable any antivirus software and then remove your mail account, close and
    reopen WinMail and then add your mail account back again. See point 3 here:
