I am running Outlook 2010 under Win7, standalone (no Exchange). Today I cleaned and compacted my PST using scanpst.exe, as I do every month.
I noticed late this afternoon that there are no messages VISIBLE in the Sent Items folder though there is a notation that there are 5328 messages in the folder (the number 5328 is listed in green to the right of the folder name). When I click on the Sent Items folder, I see a heading that says "There are no items to show in this view.". The view is set to "Arrange by date/Newest on top".
Any help you could give me in recovering the view of the contents of my Sent Items folder would be greatly appreciated. (On the advice of something I read online, I tried running the "Outlook /safemode" command, but that made no difference. There were still no messages visible in the Sent Items folder.)

The above is a snip so you can see what i'm describing.
thanks in advance!
