Yesterday I opened, read, and closed an email message with the intent of returning to it later. Later it was nowhere to be found. The same thing happened to me the day before. Prior to that, to the best of my knowledge, I've never lost an email message and have opened. closed, and returned to literallly hundreds, if not thousands. I am using Outlook Express. What am I doing wrong or what else could be happening?

Hi cwilmot

Perhaps your view settings have changed?

In Outlook Express:
View > Current View > Show All Messages

Let us know if that works.

Thanks for the prompt response, EA. But, no, that wasn't the answer.

Have you done a 'Find' (Ctrl+E) and an 'Advanced Find' (Ctrl+Shift+E).
And did you go to Tools>Options>Mail Setup and clicked on Data Files...?
This should tell you where all of your files have been sent too,
