Hi All, I am currently facing a problem with outlook express compacting folders option. One of my colleague complained that last 3 months of emails are removed from Deleted Emails folder after Outlook Express finished compacting the folders. However there is no option is selected to delete the messages while compacting in maintinance tab page of Options. Only compacting option is set to run while there is 5% of wasted space. Now the question is how does it happened and how can i stop it happening again? And Can I recoved/restore those deleted message somehow? Any help will be highly appriciated. Thanking you and best regards.

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

If you want to keep messages, do not put them in the delete folder for starters. Create folders to store them in and store them on your PC hard drive instead of in the delete folder. Syncronize will help you do this. The delete folder is just that, one step from being gone forever. You can create as many folders as reasonable to store your email in.
