Emails disappeared in Outlook Express

I somehow made about 2300 emails disappear.  The last thing that shows on my email is April 28. No new emails are showing. Someone suggested that I hit a setting that hides the emails. If I did, I have no idea how I did it, or how to get them back. If anyone knows I would love to know the answer.

Software/Hardware used:

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you somehow deleted these by accident, they would show up in your Deleted Items folder. If they are hidden somehow, you could try going to View —> Current View —> make sure that “Show All Messages” is selected. I would advise checking all mail folders, in case they were accidentally dragged into one of your other folders.
