Lost messages in Outlook Express Sent Folder

Q: Lost messages in Outlook Express Sent Folder

Using Outlook Express, I typed and sent a message and instead of OE sending it it went into the outbox. Went to that folder, opened the note and sent it. Checked my sent folder and that mesage was there but all the others previously sent messages disappeared. Can you tell me what might have happened and can you help me recover them? Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Lost messages in Outlook Express Sent Folder

To try the easiest thing first, in OE, select the Sent Items folder. Then up at the top click on View, point at Current View and make sure "Show All Messages" is checked. If it's not, click it to check it. See if the missing messages reappear.

I Have Windows XP Professional and Outlook Express 6 on a PC.

I have lost the messages from around 6 or 7 or my Outlook Express folders. The individual folders are still there, under Local Folders as usual, but they are now empty.

I can see .bak files in the Recycle Bin with the same names as the folders, and have tried to import these back into Outlook Express after changing the .bak suffix into .dbx, but without success. I always get an error message that says: "No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open. Please select another folder or try closing applications that may have files open."

Can anyone help, please? Also for my education, is a .dbx file an OE folder file or a message file?

All of my messages that were in my sent folder(except for today's messages) are gone. Last night I was sorting thru my messages and checking some links to websites... when the x10 camera popup came on and froze my computer. I restarted the computer and only stayed on a few mins after that.
This morning when I logged on I saw that there were only a couple of new(from today) messages in my sent box.
When I go to Windows, Application Data, Identities, Microsoft, Outlook Express there are two sent folders listed .dbx One is the old one with many letters and one small one. The small (new) one says sent items [1] .dbx
How can I get all my old messages back?

Was the newsgroup a paid or free group?

If it was paid, then you may have to subscribe again. If free, that one may have died.

Is it the messages in the newsgroups that you have lost, or your emails?

I'm having a bit of a problem with OE 6. It seems that when I opened it this morning, all my messages were missing. Inbox, Outbox, Deleted... all the 'default' folders were empty. Compounding my frustration, ALL of my 'user-created' folders are GONE. I poked around a bit looking for *.dbx files, and the only ones that show up are the defaults - and they're all <50k in size or so.

I assume the problem came about as a result of a Windows hard lock-up yesterday (long story, but I've got a wonky SATA cable to one HDD on my RAID 0, the cable was 'reseated', and the drive checked out fine - this has happened before with no 'unrecoverable' consequences), anyhow, I had to hit the reset button to get the rig to budge. Regardless, I find it hard to believe that improperly shutting down Windows would somehow result in the LOSS of folders, corruption sure, but total loss? I dunno.

Did the usual AdAware/SpyBot/Virus checks, and I'm 100% clean on all fronts.

Anyway, all insight/help/support is appreciated.

Hi, I read a tutorial on saving oe emails onto disc which I followed. This involved copying store folder in oe and pasting it in run box and then writing the files to disc using the cd wizard in windows (this moved the folders from oe). After doing so I checked the disc, but the folders appear to be empty. Oe opens completely empty (only showing the standard folders, which are all empty) and when I try to import them back into oe from the disc the message says the location does not contain any information of this kind. When I try to open the folders from the disc I just get the empty oe box. Is there anything I can do to get these back again? Hope this enough info.

A:All messages are missing in my Inbox folder in Outlook Express 6.

Hi shaikgani
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Is the Inbox.dbx file with the size 2,097,099kb, named: Inbox(1).dbx ?

If so, close Outlook Express and copy the Inbox(1).dbx file to a folder on the Desktop as a backup.

Go back to the directory containing the Inbox(1).dbx file and locate the Folders.dbx file, rename it: Folders.old

Start Outlook Express, a new Folders.dbx file will be created which will reindex all the .dbx files. It may take a few minutes, it is best to not do anything else on the computer until the process is complete.

When Outlook Express starts, there should be a new folder called: Inbox(1) access that folder and the messages should appear.
This will not be the default Inbox since Outlook Express already created a new one.
Keep the Inbox empty, move messages you want to keep to folders of your own creation in Outlook Express.
Let us know if that works for you or not.

If the delete folder was deleted don't worry about it, close out Outlook Express and restart it. It will recreate a new one.
EDIT

Just had another thought also. The properties on the file may have gotten changed to hidden in which case you will have to go into folder options and change it to show all files and then once it appears again right click on the file and change it on the file to archive instead of hidden.

Hello,
 
I have a puzzler for the Outlook wizards. I'm wondering if somebody can help me recover my colleague's lost folders and messages. The short version is that I changed the Root Folder Path setting in Outlook 2013 for his IMAP account, resulting in the loss of several nested folders and contained messages that were apparently not synced by IMAP. Reverting the setting did not recover the folders/messages!
 
------- Long version ------------
 
Please bear with me on the explanation and please please do provide any relevant input that might help with this issue.
 
My colleague is using Outlook 2013 and had 2 IMAP accounts configured: 1 Gmail account and 1 other account (let's call it "Work"). At first, his issue was that several of his "Work" account folders nested under the Inbox were not syncing to his iPhone email client. I attempted to help by configuring IMAP folders in both applications.
 
The provider of the Work email specifies that the path for IMAP folders should be configured as "INBOX." Therefore I set this path on his iPhone and changed the Root Folder Path in Outlook 2013 for the Work account to the same, "INBOX".
 
Upon the change in Outlook 2013, his nested folders immediately disappeared, including all of the contained messages. I reverted the setting back to the default (blank), which restored only 1 folder with a handful of messages, one that apparently had been configured as an IMAP folder, but the rest of the folders were ...

Hi

Outlook stores its folders as DBX files, the path to them is

C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxx\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, where xxxxxx is the name of the account.

Look there and see what folders are listed and the size, blank folders are usually 1k or 2k, folders with stuff in will be bigger, it may be a good idea to search other users outlook settings in case something went screwy with XP, a quick cut and paste of the folders into the right directory shoud resolve the issue.

However if you cant find any DBX files of the right size then there is a good chance that the mails are gone.

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.
 

A:How do I import messages from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002?

Update: I realized that Outlook can't open the .dbx files and that Outlook Express has to export them to Outlook. However, when I tried this it only exported the messages in my "Sent" folder and none of the messages in any of the other folders, including Inbox.dbx which is about 500MB in size so I know the messages are in there.

Thank you so much.
 

A:How do I get outlook express messages?

Outlook Express keeps email in .dbx files...Inbox.dbx, Sent Items.dbx, etc. To find them, first make sure to "un-hide" hidden files by opening a folder, any folder, and going to Tools>Folder Options>View tab and putting a check mark in "Show hidden files and folders," click OK.

Then do a search of the hard drive for "*.dbx" (without the quotes, with the asterisk and dot). Since no programs will open, and you cannot, therefore, open OE>Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder button to find out which folder it's using for email messages, your best bet is to save all .dbx files you find. After the reinstall, using OE's Import feature, figuring out which is the right dbx file is a matter of trial and error.

The address book, if you want to save it, is a .wab file. Same method as above only search for "*.wab" and save them all. Don't save "wab.exe"...that's just the executable and does not contain any addresses.

When you're ready to import the data back into OE, be sure to get all the Windows updates first. Often OE will refuse to import data until it has been updated to the same point the OE that created the data was.

For some unknown reason my OE messages will not display. All my subjects are still listed but clicking (highlighting) them does not result in the message being displayed. Just as disturbing, or more so, this is also true of all messages store in folders in OE. I have also just discovered that I can not compose messages in OE either. I can address them, enter a subject, but not get into the message body to type my message. Note also when trying to read messages when I move the curser over the message body an hour glass occurs along side of the curser as if another program is trying to load. No matter how long I wait the message never occurs. Using IE 6 with OE. It has been working fine for years up until the past week. Thought about trying IE 7.0 beta to solve the problem but being a beta am not sure if I want to try that. Still getting my email through my isp and Thunderbird but I need info from those saved messages in my folders. Any help with this will be appreciated.

I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.

My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to Earthlink.net with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.

When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.

I thought it might have something to do with installing SP-2 on my XP Home Edition BUT SP-2 was installed about 6 months ago and my e mail problem started about 8 months ago.
That is my problem! Can anyone offer suggestions?
 

A:No Outlook Express Messages Are Printed

Hi George-2

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

So if I understand correctly, you can send and receive emails ok.

The problem lies in that the messages you receive are blank inside?

If you run your mouse over the inside of the message, does anything show up in the highlighted/selected area?

Perhaps your fonts have a white color?

Are you able to create a new message and see the fonts inside?

Let us know.

There must be a better way to find what has already been written on this subject, without creating a new thread.

I have Windows XP and Outlook Express and suddenly I cannot send messages, but can still receive them.

A:Cannot send messages on Outlook Express

But you have created a new thread?
What is your Email provider? or Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Google the Email provider and Configure Email settings for Outlook Express. Check you settings against what they suggest. Or you can contact the Email provider and have them walk you through it.

I'm running XP Home SP2 and Outlook express with all the windows updates. Now when I go into OE my new messages come in fine, but when I exit out and then go back into OE the messages are GONE! Completely gone in all the folders! I have ran Ad-Aware and the sytem is now clean and I did a complete scan with Mcafee and it came back clean as well. Everything else on the PC seems to run fine with no problems, has anyone seen this problem before or know what's going on??

Thanks

Every time I logon on to my Outlook, the messages are empty. I found out that I need to click Start, Run and then type in: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

This then reveals my messages, but I have to do it everytime I logon.

Is there a way to fix this permanently?

Thanks

A:save messages in outlook express

I have a folder created in My Documents entitled, of all things, 'Saved Emails'. I then click on the email I wish to save, click on 'File' and select 'Save As'. Then navigate to the folder in My Documents, open and click on 'Save'. Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to save more than one email at a time.

Just my 2 cents worth

When I turned my computer on this morning, Outlook Express locked up and had to be shut down. Upon restarting the program, I noticed that about a month's worth of mail was missing (from Oct 12 to Nov 15).

I've spent all day trying to find a solution. I've identified the location of the OE Files and tried copying the files from my inbox to another folder and then importing them. This resulted in duplicates of the files that were there when I started, but the missing messages were still missing.

I also tried renaming the old inbox, creating a new inbox, and copying the data from the old to the new and then using the new one. Interestingly, although I attempted to copy everything from the old to the new, the file size of the new one is much smaller. But my missing emails are still missing.

If anyone can recommend an inexpensive solution to this problem, I would appreciate it. We're a nonprofit animal rescue and the emails I lost included all of the applications on a litter of puppies I'm fostering, so I'm very anxious to recover them.

Thank you!

Hello there,

I have another issue with outlook express 6. When a message is sent, it goes to the outbox and just stays there, it's bold for a 3-4 sec then is normal text (the like you get when you've opened an e-mail). But the thing is outlook keeps that particular message in it and the receipient gets the mail 5-6 times. and it's not shifted to the sent items either. so any solution to this problem? Please.
 

A:Outlook express 6 outbox messages

You probably hav a damaged outbox DBX.
Open OE>tools>options> maintenance>store folder and copy that long address. Be sure you copy all of it.
Go to start>run and paste it in.
The OE folders will be there. Find Outbox DBX and delete. A new one will be created when you
open OE again an empty one. If you want to keep any messages in there move them to another folder first

Hello to all,

I need to format my hard disk and install win xp from scratch. I need to backup all email messages from outlook express (both Inbox and Sent folder). I'm not sure how to do that.
Is there any standard way to do it using outlook itself, or I need to find where these messages are placed and copy that folder?

Thank you

Does anybody know how to copy and save outlook express messages in from Vista to another pc using XP?
 

A:Copying outlook express messages

Have a look in the file menu for Import and Export.

You should be able to export the messages then import them on the other machine, unless you mean you want to share mailboxes between both machines, in which case it isn't possible.

If you do want to share mailboxes, look at changing to using GMAIL (which can use to get email from other accounts too) then you can use Outlook express to view the email, but keep it stored online, meaning you can access it from both machines.
