have windows xp,and i have also noticed that all the messages in the inbox folder are 'missing' except emails on or after 24/03/2007
i have a probelm with my outlook express that my service provider couldn't resolve.
In the sent folder,i can only read the text body of emails on or before 03/08/2006;each of emails thereafter read that 'message has not been downloaded'on advice,i tried 'system restore' to earlier date 2X but issue unresolved!next advice was to move emails to inbox folder-yet issue was unresolved!!!SOS!!!
i tried disk cleanup and disk defragmentation of my PC.
Finally i downloaded Accurate Outlook Express Mail Expert and was able to recover all the 'missing' emails in my inbox folder;however the text body of those emails after 03/08/2006 in the sent folder is still 'missing'-in its place in each email is the message' Message could not be displayed
