Microsoft Outlook/Windows Live Mail, lost email


Hi Nancy,

Today, I did not receive an email from a client. They later re-sent it, at which time I received. At the same time, when I was downloading my email, the first time. The download box showed, 'receiving 1 email'. That email turned out to be a previously downloaded message from 1 month ago, which now appeared as unread?

Can you tell me what might be going on?



Jonathan, this would be something related to your setup and the server where you emails are coming from.

Are you downloading to Outlook?  In which case something may have happened on the server .

I Am not familiar with Windows Live mail.


Microsoft Outlook
