Re: Deleted Items NOT showing up in Deleted Items folder

This is really for Gary VanderMolen.

I have exactly the same problem as Dot2DotBarb........the letters in my
deleted items folder suddenly disappeared. The folder still lists them
as being present (and how many read and unread in the properties
section)but they are not displayed. I tried everything suggested in this
thread but have had no luck. Is there something else I can do?
I installed some critical updates offered by Windows update in the last
few days. Perhaps these had something to do with the sudden onset of the
problem. Should I try a system restore?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Follow up: After writing the last message I decided to change the
setting to something that I didn't want and then went back to the
"Show all
messages" setting. It seems to work now! Thank you, Gary!

I did do that before I wrote the original message. I was set
correctly, so I
didn't have to change it. Any other suggestions? I'm at a loss and
appreciate any help you can give me.

The "Show all messages" setting is on a per folder basis, so be
sure you have the Deleted Items folder open when you check that

I've been using Windows Mail for 18 months without any
significant problems.
Now, when I delete an email from my "Inbox," it does NOT appear
in my
"Deleted Items" folder. It just seems to disappear. I did read
many of the
earlier posts and have tried the suggestions. I've gone to
Tools>Options>Advanced>Maintenance - the "Empty messages from
the Deleted
Items folder on exit" is NOT checked. I've also gone to Current
View "Show
all messages" - that's identified/checked. Is there something
else that I
can do? I'd appreciate any suggestions. This is the first time
I've used
the Discussion Group, so I hope that I'm doing this correctly.
