dear all,

was composing a message in outlook 6 (running under windows2000) when i got an error message which read "msimn has generated errors. a log is being created." I'm not sure that was the exact name but msimn is close to it. after that i closed out of outlook (or was closed out, forgot which) and came back in and found NO EMAILS in my INBOX.

at that point i closed out of outlook, powered down, and came back in, thinking that would fix the glitch. But it didn't. There were still NO EMAILS in my INBOX.

PANIC! And the delete folder was empty too. Thought I'd check just to make sure!

I figured out where my message store was, went there and sadly enough, by inbox.dbx was a very short length. so was my deleted.dbx.

Is there anywhere, anyway, i can get those 'in' files back? lots of upcoming travel confirmation & airline ticket numbers & flight info is there; car reservation numbers and so on. It'll be a day's work to get all that information back manually.

haven't backed up since 1 month ago.

is there any help for me? thank you, all.

So inside your inbox , do you alteast the information about different emails , i mean From where it has come , subject, date etc and only NOT the message bodies ?

In the case do this

Start--> Run  --> Typein : regsvr32 inetcomm.dll
close OE and open it again

Check if all the messages appear ..

Hi Sunray,

No, the entire message is gone. The inbox says there are no emails in it. I will try your first suggestion meanwhile. Thank you.
