About a week ago when I went to retrive some email I had stored on my "Inbox" heading in the folder that was "drafts"'s gone. The whole folder. In fact, ALL the folders that were under my TDS Inbox heading are gone. I can't even see what I have deleted. Drafts, junk mail, deleted...all gone. I can't remember clicking on anything I shouldn't have, and I have no memory of some stupid window popping open and asking me an equally stupid question. All the sub-folders under the "Storage Folders" are still there, but what I want isn't there. Arghhhhhhhh...(pulling hair and gnashing of teeth...)

Any hints on how to try and get this missing info/folders back where they belong?

In what email program? And, what Operating System?
Do you have different accounts set up for the computer? NOT email accounts. User accounts.

I discovered the strangest, the folders aren't where they are supposed to be...BUT...I clicked on one email I wanted to save/copy, so clicked on "copy to" and lo and behold, those files that are NOT visible under my TDS inbox heading are all there. But, I have NO idea on how to restore them so they show under the inbox heading. Any suggestions?
