Outlook Express freezes up, reboot and there are only 400 of the 1500 messages in the inbox

Problem - just as it says above - Outlook Express froze up, did CTRL ALT DEL, closed out, opened it back up, only 400 of the 1500 that were there just minutes ago. Seems that everything prior to 5 months ago just mysteriously vanished - I did a search for the dbx file and there is only one inbox.dbx file - and it seems to be in the normal default location. Is there anything I can do to retreive them? PS - were running on a 98 machine - I know..I know. But any help would be greatly appreciated!
