loss of part of my outlook express

by willtheconk / January 24, 2006 6:14 AM PST

The other day when turning on I had lost all the messages which were in my inbox, and had lost the top half of the named files containing messages. The bottom part of the directory was still there. I am trying to send these to my son so have created a zip file,but this is 11000KB so too large to send by e-mail.He is trying to get me to send by ftp (whatever that is) but I am at a loss to see how to do this. I am now 73 years of age, and I need instructions like turn on computer,go to start click start, then click run, then click whatever I do to change directory to the D drive, Program files/outlook where these files are. Can anybody help me? Why did the files go walkabout? Then how do I restore them?
All help more than gratefully received,by an old stupid englishman.

Thanks for message I have indeed tried usendit,but after going for a time it comes up with error on page. This is in the bottom left corner. I then do not know whether to try carrying on with sending it or stopping. Have you had this? Or do you know if it is possible to just carry on sending ( hopefully)?
Help appreciated.

"Error on page" usually not a problem. carry on sending

This error message is a catch-all statement meaning there is something on the web page that the browser either hasn't read properly (connectivity problem) or there are missing items in the web page itself. This problem normally affects the graphics on a web page.

This can be a temporary glitch (caused by insufficient bandwidth), and may be quickly resolved, or it can have a more complex and longer term problem. With regard to most cases of this Internet Explorer Error message, it is due to not having given sufficient time to download the page you are requesting.

It is necessary to wait until the bottom left hand corner of the page reads 'done' before selecting any other links on the page to move forward.
