    Hi. All of a sudden, all the emails in the all inbox under quickviews has
    disappeared. However, the emails are still in the inboxes of the individual
    account. I have tried turning it off and on again, but it remains empty.
    Any way to get them back all in that one view? Thanks

    Thanks for the explanation, Peter. I was also having this issue.
    I think the so-called "final" version of WLM is buggy as hell.
    The beta version worked much better. I hope they come out
    with a new version that fixes all bugs.

    Thanks Peter I had the same problem and it was fixed with your trick, after
    investing a fair amount of time to fix it.
    Thanks loads

    thanks Peter for this concise fix! after being completly unable to identify
    why this was happening and not finding a fix I started by googling and found
    a mirror of your explanation at eggheadcafe.com but missing the sentence:
    "SearchFolderVersion" under the registry key

    I always get at least 3 opinions before registry edits and thought I'd
    mention this ommision in my thanks. it should also be noted that this dosn't
    fix the problem immediatly on restart of WLM, rather after a couple of
    minutes while it's rebuilding the cache.

    Hi Peter

    Just wanted to say thank you also for the solution here. I've had to use it
    several times over the past few months. It would be nice if there was an
    actual fix for it soon though from Microsoft. Hopefully other people can find
    this solution too and know how to access it.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Peter,
    Thanks so much for your help. Have just started using WLM and it's great
    but this morning the useful Quick Views was empty. Found out to fix this in
    regedit though - me not a computer buff. Still can't find out what storage
    folders are - having searched everywhere for the info.

    Dear Peter,

    Could you elaborate how to delete the registry value. I am a computer dummy.

    Repairing Windows Live Mail Quick Views Counter

    1. Close WLM
    2. Open Regedit
    3. Start/Run/Regedit
    4. Navigate(in the left hand pane) to the following location:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\
    5. Click on Windows Live Mail(left hand pane) to reveal the key's content
    6. Using the cursor/scroll bar(right hand pane) find the entry 'SearchFolderVersion'
    - This entry is in the field/column with a header titled 'Name'
    7. Click on 'SearchFolderVersion' to highlight that single key
    8. Delete the entry 'SearchFolderVersion'
    9. Close Regedit
    10. Open WLM
    - the registry key will be recreated and WLM will poll for unread messages

    Note of Caution:

    - Registry editing can create serious problems if used incorrectly. Proceed with the above at your own risk.

    You are the man! I found this answer on the first search, which is usually
    not the case when it comes to computer glitches.

    Thanks again!
