My computer had some network difficulty. After shutting down I noticed my Outlook Express inbox was empty. When browsing to my OE folder I see two inboxes, 1) Inbox.dbx 10MB, 2) Inbox (1).dbx 75kb. . How do I get my original inbox back? I'm running XP SP2.
Looks like Outlook Express is using Inbox(1).dbx file for data.
First back up Inbox.dbx with 10KB of data to a safe location.
Then try to import the emails from Inbox.dbx in the OE folder. If you can import the emails, then you have recovered your emails.
