  1. Hey guys!

    Outlook 2007 is driving me crazy! I spent couple of hours trying to figure out where my messages went when I accidentally move them to the "RSS Feeds" folder.

    Well this is what happened: While I was organizing my outlook items I accidentally move 2 messages from the "inbox" to "RSS Feeds" I tried the search option to look for those particular messages but I can't find then, I looked into my others folder but nothing... I look everywhere including the RSS Feeds folder and trash and no luck...

    I hope somebody here give me a hand or some ideas of what can I do.

    The standard windows search option will not find things in outlook anyway - it is a form of database, in which each email is a record. You would need a program that will search at a very low text level, and also having found what you need, the chances of recovering it into outlook are poor. You could get to see it in text mode, but just copy-and-paste of text is likely to be all you can do.

    Maybe someone else can offer a better idea.
