Did you look in the Deleted Items folder

Commented:
If the emails are truly missing and there is no other Inbox on our machined then the bad news the emails are probably gone unless that program I posted can retrieve them.

Commented:
use any of software from this list.many are shareware but there might be some freeware too.

I haven't seen filters and rules mentioned.  Are you sure there is no filter or rule that would have caused this?

Hmm, my answer shouldn't be accepted, I didn't answer anything...

Also, if you didn't get anything back a "C"-grade is still not an option... delete would be better in that case...

It would be nice to have some feedback from the questioner.  If it is solved, let us know how.

Commented:
Being that it was next to one of mine I would think it was one of my coments. But who knows. :)

Pretty big chance (about 72%) ;-) But also you wouldn't be happy with a  "C"-grade.

Commented:
I am thinking the emails were in the Deleted Folder. If they were then no a C grade is unwarranted. :)
Select Tool -> Options
In that select maintenance.
here click on "Store Folder" button.
I will provide some cryptic folder name.
Note it down.

Create new indentity.
Select Tool -> Options
In that select maintenance.
here click on "Store Folder" button.
Locate your folder which you have noted down where you have your old *.dbx files
select your desired dbx file.
I t will ask for confirmation. Select yes.
Close Outlook.
next time you will have youe old dbx files in OE properly.
Hope this helps.
