I connected to the office via vpn from home to Exchange 5.5 mailbox with Outlook 2000.  It downloaded all my email to my home Outlook.  The next day I find all email in my Outlook 2003 inbox gone.  I imported pst files made in the am that were stored local to my desktop, but am still missing email from the last 6 months.  What did I do?  Why did connecting to the Exchange server actually move all of my mail?

Think it has nothing to do with the Exchange server configuration , believe you would have configured to download the mails on to your Local PST on Outlook at Home .

With regard to the last 6 months mails do check in your Archive Folder on the your Home computer .

You might have set the settings to download and delete email from the server or as above it could have been with the Exchange Server Configuration as 5.5 is getting quite old now

It is making more sense now that settings on the client are mentioned.  I configured Outlook using POP3, which is designed to delete mail from the server as soon as it is downloaded.  IMAP would have been a smarter choice.  I am used to the Exchange server settings screens, which I did not see while configuring the client at home and ended up using POP3 protocol.
