Hi paascal,

Since the Emails appear when you try searching, you may 'select, drag & drop' the required 'Emails' into a new 'folder'.

You may also try to repair the 'PST file' in 'Outlook'; appears to be a corrupt backup. Please refer to the following 'Microsoft article': How to use Inbox Repair tool to repair pst file in Outlook

Note: The 'Inbox Repair Tool' cannot repair every problem that is detected. In some cases, items may not be recovered if they were permanently deleted or corrupted beyond repair.

Hope this helps.

Hi paascal,

It is likely that there is a filter on the 'View Settings'. You may try to 'reset' the 'view settings' to clear 'filters', if any. To restore view settings click 'View' > 'View Settings' > 'Reset Current View' > Check the results

If the issue persists, try tapping <Ctrl><6> to view the complete 'Folder List'; browse for the missing 'emails'. If it is still missing, try to 'clear and regenerate' the 'Navigation Pane' for the 'Current Profile'. To clear the 'navigation pane' settings, click 'Start icon' > Type 'outlook.exe /resetnavpane' (without quotations) in 'Search Programs and Files' text-box > Tap 'Enter' > Tap <Ctrl><6> again to view the 'Folder List' > Look for the Emails now

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.

Hi paascal,

Glad that you found the emails; thank you for confirming
Would like to know if resetting the 'Current View' fixed it or the 'key combination(Ctrl+6)' worked.
