    If anyone can help i'd be really grateful -

    On booting up this morning and checking my messages i noticed a sub folder
    'Personal' under the inbox heading missing - i've still got all my other sub
    folders - just my personal one missing ??????

    I've looked everywhere (including the possibility of drag pasting it
    elsewhere by mistake) and even system restored to two weeks ago - still not
    there??

    My antivirus is fine and uptodate as well as my firewall.......

    Any ideas as i'm in the crap!!!!

    Thanks

    Your folders.dbx file may be damaged. Do you have backups?
    Also, turn off 'Compact in the background' from Tools / Options /
    Maintenance. This is known to corrupt .dbx files.
