    i installed windows live main yesterday, since outlook express no longer
    works with hotmail.

    When I tried using windows life mail, I found yesterday that it took my
    entire inbox messages, and moved them into the deleted items folder. I just
    highlighted and moved them back to the inbox folder.

    Today I found that about 300 messages were moved automatically from the
    inbox into the deleted items again. I moved all of the deleted items to my
    inbox again .... and in about 5 minutes, over 300 messsages just
    automatically moved into the 'deleted items' folder.

    It keeps happening each time i move
    them over. for some reason, there are a few messages from august that do not
    move over like that. this is occurring with read and unread messages alike.

    I have no rules set up so far either.. hotmail is the only accountthat i
    have set up on live mail.

    What do i do. I will virus scan again. should i uninstall and reinstall
    the whole program. is there a fix?

    What instructions did you follow to install the Hotmail account in WLM?
    Tools, Accounts, Add, New, entering a hotmail address will add the account
    with http access.

    If using Pop3 access for a Hotmail account, once downloaded into the Pop3 email client, the Hotmail web server will move those
    messages from the web interface Hotmail Inbox to the Hotmail Deleted folder unless the Pop3 email client is configured to Leave on

    Messages moved to the online Deleted folder are removed after 5 days.

    Please provide additional information.
    Type of email account(pop3, http, imap) ?
    Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, your isp ?
