Missing Inbox Messages

By sayersc12 ·
I opened Outlook express and all messages in inbox were missing. it however managed to receive new messages. i checked the inbox.dbx file and it is about 650MB. i created another profile tried to import the messages from my profile, it only imports sent and deleted messages in the inbox there is only the last 4 messages i received after the disappearance of other messages.

I even tried import using Microsoft outlook to no avail.

You might be out of luck

A 650MB mailbox is WAY too big for OE to open. Even Outlook is limited to about 64MB. How on earth you got an inbox that big without having problems before is beyond me.

One thing you might try is to download one of the free email clients such as Thunderbird or even (heaven forbid) Eudora. One of these MAY be able to import your emails from Outlook Express.

If that doesn't work, you're probably out of luck retrieving them.

Any chance your current view is set to (unred messages"?
Verify this by insuring it is set to "View all messages".
