    WinZip (6.3 (SR-1))

    Win98, Outlook Express. I did a clean install to correct a software conflict. In the process I used WinZip, as I have in the past, to zip up my email folders. I zipped the email onto a brand new zip disk. When I unzipped the files after the clean install, and imported the email into Outlook Express, I got email from 9/00 back to 6/99. Nothing in the past year.

    Now what makes this wierd is that about every 3 months, I delete all email that I have not already processed that is older than 6 months. Then in the Deleted Items directory, I delete email that is older than 9 months. So where did all of this old email come from? And, where is my more recent stuff.

    Not only is the email since 10/00 missing. The directories that I had created are also missing.

    I thought that perhaps I can run the unzip and import again, but would like some feedback.

    you apparently had email in two locations and backed up the old location, not the new one.

    Or you had a second zip (from last year) and used the wrong one. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    the only hope of recovering the mail is you reformatted the drive is if the second one happened.
