    I use Hotmail, and whiile I have the Hotmail account in Outlook Express I never look there. But today I did look and found a large supply of old and new mail there. Forgetting that by deleting Hotmal in OE I also delete it in Hotmail, I deleted all the OE mail, even though I wanted to keep it in Hotmail. I then realized my mistake. I went to OE's Deleted Mail and found it there. Then, my second mistake. I forgot that I need to highlight items before trying to move them from Deleted Mail to my OE Inbox. So, with nothing highlighted, I went to Edit and clicked on Move to Another Folder, and chose Inbox. The Deleted Mail folder went empty but nothing showed up in the Inbox. I presume that the stuff is lost forever, but just in case I'm wrong and somehow the stuff is still on my hard drive, and someone out there has an idea how to retrieve it, I thought I'd pose the situation here. Thanks, grandpaw7
