I am looking to get emails back on a computer at work. I am running Microsoft Outlook. When I opened my Outlook a msg. popped up and it read as follows,

"Outlook could not open file containing the folders used to send and receive email messages, create appointments and opwn the address book. Please select from options."

-Create a new personal folders file
-Open an existing personal folders file

I selected to create a new personal folders file.

When Outlook finished loading I noticed that I was missing my emails and contact informaition. From what I can tell is that they were not deleted maybe just not loaded into Outlook. I have tried loading some inbox.dbx and inbox.pst files but all I get is emails form a couple years ago.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.
