    I operate windows xp for an os. I am having a very strange issue with outlook. My emails arrive in my inbox. I then open them. Upon closing out of the email, they disappear for good. I can not find them in other folders, I have no rules set up either. I am worried this is a virus issue. Can anyone help me?

    Do you have the view set up to only show unread e-mails?

    What version of Outlook do you have?
    What is the View currently set to?
    How long has this been going on?

    It turns out that Bob Cerelli was right on the money. I was not checking the proper thing as he suggested. The default view was set up as unread messages so it was giving the impression that the emails were deleting when they actually were not. Thank you for your help with this!
