Where is the Inbox, Deleted Items and Sent Items?

I have been using Outlook Express and decided to try the new Windows Live Mail.

I cannot find the main Inbox, Sent Items and Deleted Items. I have over 50 email addresses and cannot be going through each one to find new, sent or deleted mail. Can anyone tell me where or how to set up a single Inbox, Deleted Items and Sent Items boxes?

Thank you.

That is solved, but now a new question

In reply to: Where is the Inbox, Deleted Items and Sent Items?

Never mind. I see I can add those to the Quick View. The next thing I need to know is how to get the storage folders in the left pain before the individual email addresses.

I tried moving the storage folders up to the top, but the next time I opened Windows Live Mail, they were back at the bottom below all the email addresses. How do I get them to stay up at the top before the list of email addresses?

Thank you.

Re: deleted items has disappeared from OE

A little bit the wrong forum you've chosen. This is the forum about Windows Live.

Generally, this folder is recreated if you stop and start OE. Does it?

If not, two questions:
- what happens if you delete an item?
- on your hard disk, search for Deleted*.dbx. What do you find?
