Outlook Express not reading all emails from Inbox

I am using Outlook Express (not microsoft outlook) on windows 98 two days ago I lost the newly received emails. I checked the view option and it was on view all messages. I created a new Identity and tried to import the messages from the inbox it said there are 4000 messages it arrived to 3100 and then gave me the congratulations page that all my messaged were imported but when I went to the inbox it was the same thing it's like it couldn't read the last 800 email. I tried to use the inbox repair utility but It wasn't installed on my system.

Any help would be appreciated

Have you tried deleting some of the old emails that you just don't need?
You may find DBXtract useful - http://pcnet-online.com/picks/dbxtract.htm

backup the file called pop3uidl.dbx and ur inbox.
Delete pop3uidl.dbx from the computer and redownnload the mails.

yes I tried deleting some emails but still and I can't redownload the mails cause they are no longer on the server. DBXtract gave me an error that I can't extract the emails.

Is there a place where I can download the Inbox Repair utility of Outlook Express?
There is no inbox repair util for OE.  If DBXtract gives you errors it is most likely a lost cause.
There are two others you can try.

but the demo showed only a few of the deleted messages.

It looks promicing... I probably purchase it if there is no other ideas. (Probably a freeware? :))

I am guessing they won't help either.

I just had to move all my emails from the inbox folder to a newly created one and the lost emails appeared automatically again in my inbox I guess OE has a limit of 200 MB per folder.
