Windows Live Mail Inbox Synchronization Problem - old mails disappear

Hi,
For some time I face a strange situation in my WLM client. In Inbox folder the old emails dissapear, only emails from last five or ten days remaining availabe.
On the IMAP server the emails are not deleted.
If I delete the email account on WLC and recreate it all mails are syncronized and appear in Inbox. After a while the problem repeat - old emails dissapear, only last few days emails remaining available.
The problem appear only on Inbox folder and only on WLM. Sent folder is OK.
On Thunderbird i don't have any problem, Inbox folder is corectly synchronized.

If anybody have an idea about what could happened in WLM, plese reply!

thx

First try to repair the program from the add and remove programs by selecting unintall\change tab and follow the prompts. If that doesn't work then try uninstalling and reinstalling WLM.

Repairing Windows Live Essentials 2011 didn't solve the problem. The Inbox is still not synchronizing. I have mails only from 23.Sep.2012 till today...
I will try to delete and recreate my email account again. But I expect that problem stil remains.
Any other ideas could help. thx.

I have uninstalled Windows Live Essentials 2011 and installed Windows Live Essentials 2012.
I recreated my account again. It recognized an kept my Contacts and Storage folders.
I wait to see if problem reappears.
