    the messages in my live mail inbox disappear. I don't delete them. Is there a setting I need to change to stop it happening?

    Hey

    Seen people have a similar issue, this post helped them out:

    disappearing emails in windows 8 - Microsoft Community


    1. Open Mail App. Press Windows Key + C key.
    2. Click on Settings. Click Accounts. Click on your account name.
    3. Under Download email from, select Anytime.
    4. Wait for few seconds and you should see more mails in your inbox.


    See if that helps.

    Cheers,
    Harry

    Thanks Harry. It looks like I have two accounts when I go into settings, both with the same email address but one I can't edit because most of the boxes are grayed out. It has 'download emails from' (last 2 weeks). The other I can edit and it is set up with 'anytime'.
