You posted it at this site, not here:
http://www.vistax64.com/browsers-mail/276252-vista-mail-all-subfolders-email-gone-lost-help.html

Are they in your Deleted Items Folder behind a + sign?

Your message store should be at 
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
This file might be hidden, so you need to set 'show hidden files and 
folders' in control panel>folder options.

You can try to compact your message store to see if it repairs the database? 
go to tools>options>Advanced>Maintenance. Change the compact count number to 
1.
Close WM>allow it to compact. Open WM, reset the compact count back to 100.
If the process found your lost folders they will appear in the folder list 
under 'Recovered Items'.

You can try using WMUtil to do the above for you:
http://www.oehelp.com/WMUTil/Default.aspx

Finally you can try to use the following tool, before or after the above, 
but I don't hold out too much hope.

File recovery program:
http://www.piriform.com/recuva

It really is difficult to advise you on which of the above you do, or in 
which order?

A Back up is your friend at times like this, sadly.

Having problem of Outlook not receiving new e-mails
I have been using Outlook for over 1 year with Comcast Broadband. Suddenly last week, I received a message that Outlook 2000 was experiencing a problem when receiving new e-mails and was going to shut down. I re-opened Outlook and it looked different and then it asked for me set up a profile and I canceled it. But after that window coming up a couple of times after it shut down, I decided to put in a new name and then I could not get to my old e-mails and it acted like a new set up. Then I really got frustrated. I was eventaully able to get back to my old e-mails and have been able t...

The Links from e-mails don't work
If I copy the links and insert it into IE 8 it reads it. Trying to link over from an e-mail directly is not working. If I copy the link and go to IE 8.0 the link (URL address) works. It was working before. pgman27 You mean if you click on the link in a message it does nothing, not even an error message? Are you certain IE has all its defaults?

After a few seconds, a list of programs comes up. Click on...

How do I setup an SMTP gateway / smart host for Exchange 5.5 internet bound mail
My current setup has a Windows NT 4.0 Exchange 5.5 server setting on our company LAN behind a Microsoft ISA Server. The Exchange server's Internet Mail Connector binds to (I assume this is the proper terms) port 25 on the ISA server for inbound and outbound Internet Mail. Our company has finally upgraded to a new Cisco Pix Firewall which we are able to setup a DMZ on. The suggestion by our ISP is to setup an SMTP gateway in the DMZ and have our internal Exchange server send mail to it destined for the Internet. I am aware that most of the work for making the connections from the SMTP ...

Catch all outgoing email on Exchange and send copy to specified account
Hi all. I have been asked to find out if there is anyway to configure our mail server to catch all outgoing email from certain email accounts on our Exchange 2003 Enterprise server and forward a copy of this email to a specified account, also on the Exchange server.

Mail Merge Printing collated
When I print a mail merge (I don't use it for mailings and envelopes), Publisher prints out the first 5 records as an individual document then the next 5 as a seperate document, and so forth. Since I often need to make multiple copies of these documents, I end up having to collate them by hand. How can I get Publisher to print the entire merge as one document before printing the second, third, copy? I believe when I had P'03 it would print that way, but when I upgraded to '07 this problem started. You can't... Maybe later with a service pack these printing bugs will b...

some emails not coming through internally
Hello, I have a 3COM NBX phone system. It has the capability of sending an e-mail to a user with the voice message attached. That system is on my 10.1.x.x network. My exchange server is on my 10.3.x.x. network. There's a place in the NBX system to put the name of the SMTP server. I've tried both the email.mydomain.com and the IP address of the server. The messages do not come through. If I change the e-mail address for delivery to an account such as yahoo.com, it comes through no problem. I have a test exchange server at home. If I set it to go to that, goes no where. I ...

email
How can I change the time that it takes for message to shift from BOLD (unread) to PLAIN TEXT (as read) in my inbox. If I open MS OUTLOOK it will change within 30 seconds to PLAIN TEXT from BOLD appearing as read, even if I don't want to read them at that time. Therefore, later, I don't know if I read that one or not. I have seen the time limit change on the setup somewhere, but can't find it now! joe@dixiesteamway.com Outlook does not have this option to mark an email as read when viewing in the Preview pane.
