moderated Re: Outlook problem with number of messages

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>

I'm not sure why that happens, if it is a timing thing or what, but when it happens, I exit Outlook, and go back in and all is fine.

This problem started around 2 weeks ago with one folder, but now seems to be  spreading to  the whole Outlook folder list.

Outlook is now reporting the wrong number of messages in a folder.

For example, when I am in the folder list and read the line:

In Box 3 messages

But when I go to the message  list it says zero items and there are no messages.

If I hit the JAWS key page down, it still says 3 messages.

Any ideas about what could be wrong?


Thanks in advance,
