You haven't said if you are running WLM in WinXP or in Vista. It runs in
both and it might make a difference, so always specify. Since you posted
using the web-based interface, the headers of your message give me no clue
as to what application you posted with.
How many Deleted Items folders do you have? Have you checked them all?
There should be such a folder for each of your email Accounts. Plus,
depending on how you have WLM organized, you may also have a Deleted Items
folder under Storage Folders. Since I don't use Hotmail or Gmail, I'm not
sure how they handle these things, but they should be the same as for any
other mail server, I think.
If you have 2 email Accounts set up in WLM, named First.com and Second.net,
then you should have at least the default folders (Inbox, Drafts, Sent
Items, Junk e-mail and Deleted items) in EACH of them - in other words,
you'd have at least two Deleted items folders. These should be created
automatically, with no action required on your part, other than creating the
email account. If you deleted an email that you received @First.com, you
would not find it in Second.net's Deleted items folder.
As I said, if you opted to have WLM empty the Deleted items folder on each
exit, then you will always start each session with that folder empty.
Have you looked in the Recycle Bin for your deleted messages?
