Outlook 2007 lost mail? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Forum, my first post.
    I have just had to do a full System Restore, due to errors on my old computer, a Packard Bell i media 5109, using Windows XP Home with SP2. I reinstalled Office 2007 and when I opened Outlook and connected to my ISP Server I was surprised to find that the mail was only sent from 30th July 2009.
    Before this reboot I had mail in my inbox dating back to 2007. I was in the process of saving my important mail, using Cute PDF, but had only got up to March 2009.
    I had made a pst. file as a backup some time ago, but have yet to find it on my many backup discs.
    I have written to my ISP and they say they haven't control over 3rd party mail software, but will do everything in their control to get my mail back.
    I suspect this mail has gone forever, but on the offchance thought I would ask if you knew of anything I could do to reteive my mail?
    I know it is my fault for not backing up my mail more regularly.
    On the other hand my Windows Live Mail sent all of my 1300 mails after the full reboot. Yes I know, lol, I must sort them out too.
    Thank you in advance. tech_no
