I had a PC that required a full reinstall of WIN 95 afterwhich all apps had to be reinstalled.  Subsequently when logging into our isdn line and msn to retrieve unread messages previously viewed the messages are gone.  The isdn provider is Ameritech.  How do I retrieve the unread messages, contacts, sent mail, etc?  I need a response asap!  Help

If you were not using Exchange, then you were probably using an outlook pst file.  This file contains all mail, contacts etc that the user has.

If you backed up the machine, look for outlook.pst or mailbox.pst (or if they saved it as their name.pst).
