I wonder how long ago that was, you see OE, I think depending on its date example like 2002 has a limited storage capacity, and if like me you are a natural hoarder, if you exceed the quota allowed,the content of the Email can vanish,I am not sure if the storage in OE is 2 Gb in total but I think it could be the amount in each folder,if one has a lot of attachments or long emails it may use up its ration it did happen to me once, I could see thename of the email but once opened nothing,a person I knew came over and did a system restore, he said he had researched it on Microsoft,he also said
deleting temporary folders would be a fix, in my case I cannot say the oldest vanished the whole lot did. The reason i remember is the visitor was supposed to be reading my engineers reports, being sent from a local Church as a Good will gesture, in conversation he said he was"a code writer, I mentioned Jaws used Unicode, being curious he asked if I knew how to type a pathway to the source of a folder and he used oE,as example. I noticed after he left all emails were empty so I doubt this really answers your question, but be careful of tinkering visitors who claim to beknowledgeable If any person can research storage capacity in oE I would be grateful I know Ms outlook using Pst has more Dorothy.
Hi listers. What is the maximum number of messages that can be safely saved in a user-defined Outlook Express folder? The reason I am asking this question is that I just noticed that some of the earliest messages in my largest user-defined OE folders have inexplicably disappeared. Are messages automatically deleted from a folder if it has grown too large? Or are messages deleted after they have been saved for a certain period of time? Could the Compact All Folders function possibly delete the oldest messages from some folders? Or am I way off base? Thanks for any explanation.
