  • After compacting emails, all my emails from September 2011 until now have disappeared. Are there opportunities that I get back them?

    After compacting emails, all my emails from September 2011 until now have disappeared. Are there opportunities that I get back them? I use Outlook Exprees and he suggested that I should compact messages. I've done it several times before and everything was OK until

    Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.
    Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :
    Why mail disappears:
    Recovery methods:
    If you are running XP/SP3, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.
    To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.
    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
    In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.
    Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.
    Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.
    First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.
    If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.
    If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.
    If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:
    DBXpress run in extract disc Mode is the best chance to recover messages:
    And see:
    A general warning to help avoid this in the future:
    Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.
    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see: 
    And backup often.

  • Windows Mail small box saying to compact (or something) my Windows Mail account? When I start my computer.

    Why, all of a sudden, every time I turn on my computer do a small box saying to compact (or something) my Windows Mail account?  I've NEVER used Windows Mail!  How can I stop this box from appearing when I turn on my computer? & Why it just started appearing in the last two weeks?
    Thank you

    Hello Blessed15221,

    Windows Mail is actually installed. If you have installed Windows Live essential, without disabling all applications, chances are that Windows Mail has been installed.

    I use Windows Mail on my laptop. I'll buy a desktop in addition to the laptop computer, nd want to know if I can run the same Windows Mail account and have the fully synchronized 2, IE for both laptop and desktop at the time of sam.  Using Windows Vista.


    If your Web host/ISP e-mail allows using IMAP rather than POP is probably the easiest way.

    Check with them if they take in IMAP support and how to configure your e-mail client (Windows Mail) accordingly.

    I have two DISTINCTS Windows Mail accounts with two SEPARATE e-mail addresses.  I know how to add to a mail folder, but I need to keep them separate.  Is this possible? How?

    Use Message rules.
    Open Windows mail > tools > Message rules > Mail > New.
    Note: The rule for an e-mail address, rule #2 #1 for each other.
    Under Select the Actions for your rule: when you have selected the action, also put a check mark on «Stop treating rules more»

  • Hi, I accidentally downloads all my email from a Hotmail account without leaving a copy on the server. How can I download them back again?

    I have configured my Hotmail account with POP server to see my email in Thunderbird. When you set up the account, I have accidentally unchecked leave messages on the server on the server configuration option. The following days, I saw more than 2000 email disappearing from my Web server! How can I download their return?
    Thank you very much

    It is usual, but not absolutely necessary, for the emails to download from the server to the TB Inbox e-mail account and then delete them from the server.

    I personally, clear all but the last 30 days on the server, whereas between my monthly backup and emails on the server, I was able to recover most, if not all the mail loss.

    You could get the emails on the server, but you will notice that all dates seem to change the date when you put them back on the server.

    Original title: to replace computer yesterday

    I did a norton scan, then we went to a reboot. The computer says that there is someone else connected, and they would lose data there. I clicked restart, when it came I had lost all my emails in the Inbox. How can I get back them, or go back one day.


    1. you are using a mail client (Outlook Express) or a webmail (Hotmail)?
    2. who is the provider of mail service?

    Note : all system performing scan if data files that are infected can be cleaned by removing the file completely, i.e. There is a risk of data loss.

    I suggest you to perform system restore to a point when the computer was working fine.
