Sal Orlando situation involved having two different versions of Communicator in use: "I've been using Communicator 4.03 for quite a while and I use it for all my email. Recently I decided to give 4.05 a try, but also kept 4.03 around. There are some differences between the way 4.03 and 4.05 handle email - each time you open mail in 4.03 and then go back to 4.05, your preference settings for the mail window are reset, for example. Anyway, today I noticed that a week of email was missing from my Inbox!!! Completely gone. This seems to have been caused by switching back and forth between the two different versions of Communicator, and checking email in both versions."
