I received an error message while downloading E-mail on Outlookl Express stating there was an error in Directdb.dll and that I would have to restart my computer. I restarted and still received error message. I went on Microsoft and got this resolution for the problem: Rename the Folders.dbx file: Click Start, point to Find click on Files or Folders. In named box type folders.dbx. Click Rename in the Look In box. Right click the Folders.dbx file then click rename. Type folders.old and click OK.I did this and can now download my E-mails. But, here is my question: What happened to all my e-mails prior to this. They are not in my inbox. Did I lose them or are they in another folder and if they are how do I locate them? I had unread messages that I cannot find.
