    Hello All,

    Now before you tell me to check my ports or SSL settings or click "Show All Messages" in the View menu, I've done all that.

    Today we had a power outage, and some of the messages that I had just received were in my inbox at the time of the outage. Now, upon rebooting, I no longer have any messages in my inbox. When I look through the hidden files of the PC to go into the Windows Mail folder under Appdata, I can find my inbox with ALL of my messages (new and old). However, I can't get them to show up in Windows Mail. On the "Home" screen of Windows Mail it says I have 146 read messages in my inbox, but when I click inbox it says "There Are No Messages In This View."

    Additionally, I am returning the following error message on the Send/Receive action:
    An unknown error has occurred. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x80004005


    That's my problem. I have messages in my inbox in a way, but I can't get them to show up in Windows Mail. I've been googling for an hour and a half, looking at forums, and on and on. To no avail. Please let me know how to fix this. It's much appreciated. Thanks!

    Run chkdsk c: /r from the Run box.

    Press Windows key + R to open the Run box.
    Type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter.

    You will get a Command Prompt window with this in it:
    Enter y and press Enter.
    Reboot. Let chkdsk run to completion. See if that fixes your problem.
