    New Mail messages lost on reinstall

    I recently recovered from a complete system crash and had to reinstall Pmail.  It found all of my folders when I set the appropriate directory but I can't find the messages that were in the New Mail folder (I have the settings so that messages persist in the new mail folder between sessions).  The only message in the New Messages folder was the standard "Welcome to Pegasus Mail" message.  I have a complete backup of everything that was in the directory before the crash.

    New mail is not a regular folder but is just display of the raw *cnm files as received. In current install do Help menu, About and Info and see  where new ,mail is located now. Copy or move all *.cnm files to that location and they will be displayed as soon as new mail is refreshed.
