If you were lucky it went to your recycle bin, but then you might have
already thought of that.
If you have stopped using the PC immediately, then there is hope for any
popular (and I have no suggestions) undelete programs you can use to
retrieve the data. But undelete works great, 1 second after you
delete. The longer your PC runs and the more you do, the more you lose.

Crossposted to Outlook Express General newsgroup.

First, make sure it isn't in Deleted Items. If not, see if the dbx file for
the folder still exists in the message store and manually restore it as
follows.

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Write the location down and navigate to it in
Windows Explorer or, copy and paste it into Start | Run.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3, the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Explorer, you must enable Show
Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

In the message store in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx file for the
missing folder and drag it to the Desktop at the top of the folder tree.
Open OE and create a folder with the *exact* same name as the one on your
Desktop. Open the new folder and then close OE. (You must do this). Go back
to Windows Explorer and Click Desktop and drag the file from the Desktop to
the OE store folder that you clicked on to reveal the .dbx files. Prompt -
"Do you want to overwrite......."? Click Yes.

*Note* If you have moved the Outlook Express store folder from it's default
location on drive C to another drive, drag the dbx file to a location on
that drive and not the Desktop.

I can't add anything to the suggestions made by the other respondents
other than asking the obvious question: If your EMail files are
important to you, have you considered backing them up? Once a
week? A 2.5" disk in an external USB case is a low-cost but
highly effective backup medium. Remember this:
- After backing up your files for the first time, you MUST do a
trial restoration. If you don't then your backup is close to useless.
- You must keep your chosen backup medium well away from
your PC for most of the time.

If the actual dbx file was deleted, then the only thing that may recover the
messages is my DBXpress program (www.oehelp.com/DBXpress) and its extract
from disk feature. But its not guaranteed to do so.
