Gmail -Missing emails

Post by curious »

Today, all emails in labels below “Trash” are gone. Mail between Inbox and Trash are there.
I have looked in All Mail, Trash, Span, used the search function. Have signed out/in. Still gone.
Googles Security Checkout says I’m secure.

So, am guessing those mails in those labels are good for good?

Thanks for any suggestions!

OOPS - "gone for good"

Could it be that the Gmail service was down temporarily? I've experienced something similar once or twice - email messages appeared to have disappeared but a few hours later they were back...
Regards,
Hans

A glimmer of hope then. Thanks (though I had received new emails....) Will let you know.

Once again my folders/labels have been stripped of contents. Some Folders not showing.

In Settings/Labels, they are listed, as Show, some indicating number of 'conversations' others not.

Still find no answers on the 'Net, tho as Hans has indicated, this has happened to others.

Has any Lounger come up with a cause?

Thank you

What do you see if you click on All Mail? Are the missing messages listed there?

I see what I had imported from AOL years ago and only 6 others, 2 from March (25 and 28) and only 4 from today.

Very strange! Although Gmail has been temporarily unavailable to me, it never lasted long, and it never led to messages being lost...

As I said, I have seen on the 'Net that others have complained about this, too. Well, thanks for your input, as usual, dear Hans.
