Windows7 - Live Mail - Lost Emails
by babrees - 5/6/11 6:30 AM
Hi. Just started using WindowsLive on my new computer which has windows7. Always used outlook express previously - much better program!!
I have found that emails are disappearing. For instance, I received an email yesterday and replied to it. This morning I noticed the email was not marked that I had replied, checked the sent box and there was no email in there. I replied again thinking perhaps I hadn't replied, but she confirmed she had received two replies from me. When I replied a second time her email was definitely marked that I had replied, and my reply was definitely in the sent box. Later on I noticed her email was no longer marked as replied and my reply was no longer in the sent box.
I have also noticed other emails sent to me just disappearing. I even did a search for them and they were not found in any folders or emails.
I keep the majority of my emails and once read/dealt with I put them in a storage folder in subject order. I wondered if LiveMail didn't like that so have been testing by sending and replying to emails, moving into folders
and leaving where they are. So far I cannot see any reason why some disappear. None of my tests have disappeared so far, although they may very well disappear later today!
