Outlook Express help needed

Allright, I usually never use Outlook express cause I dont like it, but my parents use it every day. We have 2 different e-mail adresses operating with it (business and home). So we have 2 different "inbox"s. Heres my problem, I deleted one of them....what can I do? We now get e-mails for both adresses in the same inbox. No problem, but did I lose all the other ones?

Please help,



Mike

MS software never really deletes anything unless it's essential. The whole directory is probaby hiding under another name in some "temp" directory.
IIRC, that thing uses a magic file extension of .mbx for what it stores. You might try doing a search for files like that.

Have they tried Mozilla Thunderbird? It has more features than lookout.

My thought is you may be hosed! I dont have "express" i use regular outlook for XP. also on my outlook I only have one email account.. if you deleted and got the "are you sure" dialog then it may be gone for good.. I can imagine it would let you delete an inbox, without a fight.. you may have only "disabled" the other account in which case you may need to just turn it back on... I cant reproduce it on mine, I just tried...
you can delete the inbox, unless they were using a "folder" as the other inbox, and filtering the other account into it.. in that case i'd check the "out look" trash, other wise you may be hosed...

My guess would be that you may have filed the "in box" in another folder accidentally? I would check ALL folders for the inbox... this might require going to the MSFT support page too. Unfortunately I dont know outlook express enough to HELP!!!

good luck mike. if you can get to california, you can crash at my house till the heats off!!

YO, "Mike"! Care to explain to this no-one why the suggestion to search for .mbx files and directories is an invalid suggestion? I promise to slink quietly back to my nowhereland afterwards.

Hold on now, don't be so sure of defeat. Just because it didn't "find" any files doesn't mean they're not there. Is that the system with the cutesy puppy who pretends to search and fetch for you? I had to work on an XP (the eXcrement Pile, IMO) and a W2K system at a local business. Both of those just flat-out lied about search results. I had to boot the computers to Knoppix to find the files I needed, then boot back into the messy system and tell it where they were. (That business, an independent car parts store, depends on some jobber software that runs in MS Windows. The seller of the software charges $149 for the version that runs in MS, but $10,000 for the exact, same data for UNIX. Figure that one out).

Do you have high-speed Internet access and a CD 'burner'? If you do, you can burn a copy of Knoppix or Ubuntu (make sure it's the "live" CD or DVD of Ubuntu), boot the CD and run the search. Neither of those systems will alter anything on the hard drive unless you specifically make them.

Sure -- http://www.knoppix.net

You'll need to download the ISO file from some mirror (I use the one at Purdue Univ. http://csociety-ftp.ecn.purdue.edu/pub/knoppix/ but there might be one closer to you). Be sure you get the English version. Download both the .iso file and the .md5 file. That last one is so you can check the download to make sure it wasn't corrupted (IE is infamous for corrupting downloaded files).

Here are some very helpful docs that will take you through the process to make sure you have a good, bootable CD:

http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/isofaq.html

http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/howtoburn.html
This one gives links to CD burner software that works in MS Windows and gives instructions for each one.

http://www.linuxiso.org/viewdoc.php/verifyiso.html
This one gives you a link to a MS Windows version of md5summer, which is used to check the integrity of your download.

After you get it burned and booted, it should detect about all your hardware and the desktop should be easy to get around. The few people who have trouble with it seem to have it at boot time itself or with Knoppix setting a resolution higher than they're used to. If you want more help than comes on the CD, a guy in the UK has written a book and made it available for download in PDF format:
