    Red face Windows live mail lost all old emails twice

    WE use Windows Live Mail (WLM) to read email's from our main account on our ISP (RCN). We were away from home for 2 weeks. During that time I used the RCN Web Mail Reader to keep up with my emails. When we came home and I went into WLM all of my stored emails had disappeared. I looked in the wastebasket and found some files which were large and WLM related. I recovered them and when I went back into WLM I found that the emails were back. They were in some folders under recovered items. But next time I went into WLM they had disappeared again. This time they were not in the wastebasket. I spoke to RCN who explained some things but suggested the the problem was with WLM. I ran change on WLM and it said it repaired the programs. but I still do not have the emails. any ideas? Howard

    Do a search on your hard drive for files with the extension .EML
