I am running win xp and my email program is outlook express.  My email account is also accessible at outlook.com (formerly hotmail).  All of my messages (a very large number of messages) are viewable in web based email...i.e. the outlook.com.  However, when I use outlook express only 4 days of messages are viewable in the inbox.  The slider at the right goes down to the bottom of the first page but I am unable to view an subsequent pages of messages...even though all of those inbox messages are viewable in the web based email.  What do you think has caused this problem and how might I repair the problem.
Thanks,
capreol

Perhaps your Inbox is full.
Compact it.

You can also winnow the Inbox by deleting messages you no longer want to keep.  And you can move older messages into another Folder (like Old Messages).
And then compact the Inbox.

You can also delete and set back up the email account to have it redownload the files, though I would suggest downloading Windows Live Mail. If I remember right it uses IMAP,which doesn't actually download the emails but you have instant access.
