Missing email in outlook 2010 pop3 account

I have a friend who recently lost a year's worth of email in outlook.They had access to them on Thursday but something happened apparently on Friday and now they are gone.This is a pop3 account and they are not in any of the pst's on the hard drive.I really need help with this as I am at my wits end and my friend is going out of their mind because the emails were all related to their business.

Have you logged onto webmail for the email provider and see if they are still on the providers server?

Do you have a backup? You must have the old outlook 2007 PST prior to migrate to 2010....
better than nothing.

They are not in webmail because of mail space issues and there was no backup.Will scanpst help in this situation.

I should mention that the missing emails are part of the same pst that is currently in use.In other words all of the emails before a certain date are gone for whatever reason,will scanpst be able to recover those?

Is it possibly they were archived? Had a user once that clicked yes to that. Believe it was called Archive.pst.

Look at his auto archive settings in Outlook. If the users is sure that they did not perform a manual archive than the auto archive must have been turned on.  Last option is they were deleted in error.  Hope it is not the later- Good Luck!

Well depending on what version of Outlook they are using you may be able to undelete them.

Guys,
Thanks for all of the help but it turned out that they were lost during a server migration  from the web host.They have since been recovered.
