Go back to your inbox on the webmail page & double-check the date & timestamp of the "missing" messages and confirm that they were indeed received within the last 12-24 hours or so.
While you're there, see if one or more of the "missing" messages is a HUGE size (i.e., the message has a very large attachment)?
Back in Windows Mail, send a message From yourself To yourself as a test, then see if it downloads into Windows Mail after an appropriate interval.
If it doesn't, check to see if it's in the inbox on the webmail page.
PS: Is it a name@xxxxxxxxxxx or name@xxxxxxx account by any chance?
Thnak you PA Bear,
I haven't received any messages in WinMail today;
I do not have any other e-mail clients set up, although I am thinking of
figuring out how to disable Win Mail (they do not make that easy at all) and
go back to Outlook which I have used for years...just thought i'd try Win
Mail...guess I shouldn't changed what was working well.

Messages arrive but you can't see/find them, or (c) You get an error
message when you attempt to receive messages? (If the latter, post the
complete/verbatim error message.)
Do you access the same email account in another Mail Client (e.g., Outlook
or Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail on another computer)?
