I am using Outlook 2003 to connect to a POP3 account. I am not saving a copy
of any of the messages out on the server, so once they are downloaded to
Outlook they exist no where else. I have a lot of subfolders built off of my
Inbox folder and while I was deleting contacts earlier today I appear to have
some how deleted all of the emails out of these sub folders. The emails are
not in my Deleted Items folder, they are not in my archive folders, I can't
figure out where they have gone. I just have a bunch of empty sub folders.
Where does Outlook send deleted emails when you are not on an Exchange
server? Are these emails recoverable? Please help?

They go to the Deleted Folder or are permanently deleted, have you tried an
OL search for a know missing msg?
Presumably no backups?

Have you checked your Deleted Items folder for sub folders already?
This is where deleted folders go to.

If you permanently delete something from Outlook, you'll get an additional
confirmation prompt.

Restoring from backup is your best option. If you don't have a backup of
that data, you could try the steps listed here;
