Emails dissapeared into the electronic ether...

I’ve just lost a load of emails. While cleaning up my inbox (moving emails to various folders I’ve created within the inbox), I inadvertently dropped some emails onto the Personal Folders icon.

Of course, when I looked in personal folders to retrieve them, all I saw was Outlook Today.

Hmmmm. I remembered one specific unique word that was in one of them, and searched All Mail Items for that word, and sure enough, there was the email. Wicked.

However, I can’t work out how to see a list off all of the emails that are in that same folder (wherever it may be). Unfortunately, I can’t remember unique words for each of the emails I dropped in there to find them using search…

More importantly, I don’t know if I’ve done this before. And I can’t tell without seeing a list of mails!

Hope this makes sense :eek:)

TIA

That's easy... you could select the folder then search (using advanced find) without entering keywords or just disable Outlook Today, move the mail out, then enable outlook today.




Right click on the personal folders icon, choose properties and look on the folder home page tab. Disable the folder home page and return to outlook. Move the mail and repeat the steps to re-enable outlook today.
