I'm pretty sdure this is what I did..

I had the junk mail folder opened. (not the inbox folder)

I clicked on the select box to select all messages.

I accidentally clicked on the "junk" button instead of the "empty" button.


POOF ! all 100 messages or so in my inbox were deleted ! Not put in the trash either, just completely gone !


Give it a try, and have a nice day !!

My junk tab is greyed out while in the junk folder. I get the empty option or not junk on a single message basis.

Heh.. putting any reliance whatsoever on "Hotmail" for anything critical is stupid.

really, now is really the time for you to switch. Hotmail is so antiquated.
Agreed. Ever since Hotmail went to 250MB inboxes, I get errors more than I get to my inbox. I was fine with 10MB when the damn thing worked.

Yep....Hotmail and Microsoft both suck. I miss the old days of hotmail before they sold out.

cuz between all my buddies/co-workers/ex-coworkers/etc/etc and all the businesses that have it on record, it'll be a pain to switch.

I expect I will switch (to either gmail or my own) someday... but it's pretty far down my list of things to do. Besides, it basically works fine.
