Is it just the email folders and emails in Outlook Express that you can't find, or are you missing things from My Documents as well?

You don't mention what version of Windows you are using, or the email client - although I suspect this is Outlook Express.

If it is Outlook Express, then search your hard drive for files ending in dbx and let us know what folders the files are in.

Apologies, I seem to have missed that! Confused

Try going to Tools, then Options, click on the Maintenance tab, then the Store Folder button. Now change the folder to where you found the dbx files. You will need to close and reopen Outlook Express for the change to take effect.
