I noticed that I had several e-mails that just "disappeared." Wasn't a case of having deleted them. Some I had deleted and have been trying to retrieve them. Help!

Tech Support Specialist: Nick, Consultant replied 8 years ago
Ok here goes I cannot guarantee you will get them back but this might just work.
You need to download Free Undelete and point it to the folder that holds your Outlook Express Data files which will be something like this C:\Documents and Settings\(your username)\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{777109AB-CCF2-41F0-8642-3CE3DDE6722A}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

You can find out exactly which folder it is by Opening Outlook Express then clicking on "Tools" and selecting "Options" then clicking on the "Maintenance" Tab the click on "Store Folder" then highlight and copy the store location into Free undelete. If there are any deleted DBX files it should find them and you can then rename your old .DBX file and copy the old one to there and then open Outlook Express again and you should find them
Please let me know if this works for you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
