    This is weird and I wonder how many times it happens.

    I received 2 emails from the same person Friday after I left work, and I opened them on my I phone. I never deleted them and in fact responded.
    This morning at work I go looking for them and they are nowhere in my computer at work. Not in the deleted files either. I check the phone and they are missing from there as well and not in the trash folder.
    Not sure how this happens, but I do know that from past experience that anything in your inbox can be sucked back through the server unless you have deleted or moved it to another file....
    Am I going insane?

    do you have gmail? We had a problem over the summer losing emails, and I know one of my clients was having problems, too. Things would vanish, not get sent, be gone without a trace.

    I always had that problem with Outlook but Microsoft claims it never happens no matter how many people report it. Switched over to Thunderbird....never had another problem.

    If you use Thunderbird or Outlook for your gmail, yahoo, etc, go to those email accounts on your web browser and see if they are on there in a folder somewhere.

    Outlook has a problem.. a file size limit on the actual database file. After reaching about a gigabyte it starts to crap out and drop emails, and eventually just deletes itself and makes a new one.

    I believe it can be fixed by simply creating new folders and organizing things since each folder creates a new database file.

    Make sure you're not deleting the emails from server once downloaded to your phone..

    There should be a setting on your phone in the email app that says, "Delete emails from server after opening". Uncheck that option and it should work. What is happening is that your phone is refreshing your email from the server more frequently than your computer. The phone sends a signal back to the server to delete. When your computer goes to see if there are any emails, your phone has already deleted it from the server.

    That's probably what I'm thinking of. I had someone freaking out over lost emails a while back and I had to use a dbx extractor to save all her precious memories.. that were saved only in her inbox.
