    A Serious Error has Occured... Use a Undelete Program...


    While I'm still kicking myself, maybe someone can help me... 

    I received a error message saying that a Serious Error has Occured while compressing the Junk or suspicious mail folder. 

    Well, not having a undelete program, I unwisely restarted PMail. (V4.4) Will it seemed to recreate the Junk or suspicious mail folder without any of my old messages. 

    I then found and downloaded a undelete program and found in ...local settings\temp directory two files that I think are the .PMM and .PMI files that used to be my 

    Junk or suspicious mail folder.   When looking in the PMAIL folder, I find junk.pmm and junk.pmi in two directories.   PMAIL\MAIL\ADMIN and \DEFAULTS...

    Can/Where should the 'live' junk files live ??   Can I recover these temp files and get my messages back ?  The folder is called Junk, but my messages were not Junk... <grin>

    I'm open to any suggestions or ideas. 

     Thanks !!
