Hello!

My friend has "lost" all his emails from within Outlook Express. There is absolutely no sign of them.

All was well until he copied text from a web page & then pasted it into an email. After sending the email, he closed his computer down. When he restarted his computer he wanted to refer to a previous email only to find that all were gone.

He seems to think that there was a virus, possibly a Visual Basic related one, in the text that he cut from the web page & then copied into the email.

Is this possible & is there any way to retrieve the emails?

If it is possible to pick up a virus this way, are there any precautions than he & others can take to prevent this from happening in the future?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me with this matter.
