Mails in sent folder are suddenly GONE !

By itmgr ·
I suddenly lost everything in my Sent folder, but it doesn't go to the Deleted folder. It seems like a virus attacked, is it? I'm using Mcafee 4.03 with the current DAT file, and I got mail with Klez virus sometimes which then deleted immediately. Please advise me. Thanks.

I have not heard of virus' deleting your sent items, usually they go for the system folder.

If I had to guess, I would see auto-archiving is more the culprit.

Look for a .pst file named archive. You will probably find your mail in there.

Check other folders

Sometimes an errant mouse drag could move the folder into another folder. Check your other folders for the sent items.

I too have never heard of a virus that would attack your sent folder. If you are worried about a virus I suggest you download atrial version of Norton AV or Sophos.
