Outlook Express - Inbox has disappeared

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Kerry Hutchings, May 12, 2004.

  1. Please help! I woke up this morning and my inbox has nothing in it
    whatsoever. I have not deleted my emails. My sent box, deleted items box
    and all my folders are still there. Can you give me any idea what may have
    caused this?

    Thanks, Kerry

    Most likely a corrupt inbox.dbx file. First of all,
    go to Tools / Options / Maintenance and uncheck
    'Compact messages in the background'. Now
    download DBXtract and recover any emails that
    you can from your inbox.dbx file. Once you have
    done that, rename your inbox.dbx file to inbox.old
    and restart O.E.; a new inbox.dbx file will be created.
