    Hello Again,
    I'm running outlook express 6 on my XP Pro PC. I was browsing through old email sent by someone when all of a sudden the hour glass appeared. I waited for it to stop but after around a minute it was still there spinning. So I opened Task Manager and saw that the CPU was at 100%. Then I looked at the processes and saw that msimn.exe was using more than 200K in Mem Usage. After around another minute the hour glass was still there spinning and I couldn't get Outlook Express to respond so I ended the msimn.exe process in Task Manager. This finally shut down Outlook Express. However, when I opened Outlook Express again I found that my Inbox only goes up to 11/29/12. I have lost a years worth of Incoming email. My Sent folder is up to date but my Inbox has lost all of that email. I looked in Deleted folder but it's not there. I'm hoping this can be reversed with some expert advice. Can anyone please help?

    Thank You,
    gdimauro
