    There is no documented way to interface with OE, either with or without
    ..Net.

    I am sorry, I was incorrect. You can send messages and you can access the
    inbox, but there is no documented way to access any other OE folder. In
    other words, you cannot write a program to read or do anything else with the
    OE sent folder.

    OE disappearing messages and folders

    Two problems: a lot of emails I send do not appear in my sent file so I don't
    know if they've been received.
    Secondly, in the past I have lost whole folders which have just disappeared,
    as though they have been accidentally deleted but I never deleted them!
    Does anyone know how to solve these?
    A third question - would it be better to replace OE with Outlook - is it
    more stable. If you start Outlook will you be able to transfer existing
    folers from OE? Can O and OE work at the same time? Thanks.
