Outlook Express 6 lost emails

Not open for further replies.


After restarting my computer after a McAfee update, I opened my outlook express 6 and found that all my emails had disappeared as well as some sub folders. I contacted McAfee who said there programmes did nothing to the emails so I should contact Microsoft. Does anyone know had I can get my emails back. I am a novice at computer technology and am seriously panicking as the folders held important emails.

Try these location if you can see any data file there L C:\Windows\Application Data\Outlook Express\{GUID} or

C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

If you find any data file there then create a new profile & check if you can import these file or not. Please revert back if this doesn't help.
