    Hi. My PC has just been infected with trojans. I had already ran anti-virus program and deleted the files. I noticed that my "sent mails" under my "microsoft outlook" are gone. Is there a program or a way to recover them? thanks. :(

    If they are gone and not under your trash, I don't believe they can be recovered.

    I would check to see if somehow a filter got turned on to only show messages sent within the last 'x' amount of days.

    I had checked the account properties if there is an option but there is none. I guess it's really deleted just like what you have said. :(

    Sometimes it takes an event like this to teach the methodology behind regular backups. It happens to everyone, as long as you learn from it, it can turn into a positive experience.

    Your're right. I will do backups regularly starting today. Thanks again.
