Anyone else had their hotmail emails disappear?

Found 9th Jun 2010
I have just realised that most of my emails have disappeared from my hotmail account - any before 6th June 2010 have gone, I had loads of emails stored so really don't know why I've gone from 1,000 messages to 83. Anyone else had the same problem?

Mine seems okay, emails dating back to 2006 still.

Yes mine all ok, they are saved in a separate folder to the inbox though.

Thanks, I have been looking for a contact/email address for hotmail but can't find one anywhere.
I haven't deleted them myself or by accident, definitely something fishy going on

There is a lot of Hotmail accounts being hacked at the moment. :x Seems a lot of people are having issues with their accounts but never heard of missing emails :?

Hopefully just a glitch! :thumbsup:

are you refering to web based hotmail or hotmail via outlook express or outlook?

It's the web based one that they have disappeared from. Luckily Mac mail still has them stored, otherwise I'd definitely be getting my knickers in a twist about it!
I'll change my password just in case, but is really bizzare!!
Thanks everyone for your help, repped.

No unfortunately I still have 3050 unread, 500 read and 50 spam.

sounds like a hotmail custler sync on their servers
