WinME: Outlook Express - lost INBOX emails

  1. Here's what happened... While reading emails, got an error msg about "directDB.dll" not being present or something. Rebooted, but then all my Inboxs emails were GONE. When going to the folder, c:\\windows\Application Data\Microsoft~ etc, I found all files, including the INBOX. But it would not let me open it up again with Outlook.

    Suggestions? Fix?

    Thanks!
