Greetings, stevem200872 !

By "upgrade" you mean uninstall Outlook 2000 and install Outlook 2003.  Use the Import Wizard to import the emails from the old installation. Go to File > Import and Export.

If no joy, what emails are missing?  Check that you are not seeing some filtered view.  Go to View > Arrange By > Current View. Make sure Messages are selected.

Best wishes!

You may still be using Outlook 2000. In Outlook, go to Help > About. What version do you see?  

Go to Tools > Options > Mail Format. Disable MS Word as editor.  Click OK. Close and reopen Outlook. Test.

Make sure you have the latest update for Office 2003. It is up to SP2 and hotfixes.

In the inbox there was a folder called Alan@Galleons which was there but now seems to have disappeared.

All else is fine but this one folder

Check if the Alan@Galleons folder is in other folders.

Make sure all messages and folders are view in the Inbox.

You may need to repair your PST file.

Alan folder may be corrupted.  You have run ScanPST utility on PST file?

You have done an Outlook search for the folder or files in the Alan folder.
