    All of a sudden my inbox emails are disappearing. After I read it, it goes away. In fact, all my inbox emails I have had for 4 months have dissappeared. I have subfiles and they are not dissappearing only the inbox. I scanned my hard drive for a virus, and it did detect. It said it could not be deleted. It was an incoming email. I permanantly deleted it. But the disappearing act is still the star. !! :confused:

    I went in to options and tried to find a box that said
    'delete messages after viewing' but couldn't find it.
    But the strangest thing is that ALL my inbox messages
    have disappeared.
    I just scanned again, and no virus found. I downloaded a patch for the wesky worm and rebooted and your message that went to my inbox deleted.

    Tools - Email Accounts - View or Change - Next - select account - change - more settings - Advanced - Remove from server after [ ] days.

    You are saying you do not have such a setting?

    Thanks KWG, I did go there but the boxes were empty.
    AT least I changed to keep on server period so I can go to web2mail to see what has been deleted. But I want to 'fix' this, not just put a bandaide on it. What else do you have up your sleeves?
