    Me too. Why do emails disappear from folders ? I want, and I need them, back.

    Three times now, I have received an email and when I go to open it on my phone, it disappears from my inbox completely. When I go to my computer, it no longer appears in there either. I have found no way to reclaim those emails.........

    Try to open emails, click on it, the screen flashes and the emails has disappeared.

    Not all emails are showing up. First they are all there, then when I start deleting only 20 emails at a time appear and then I have to hit refresh to see 20 more.

    This is a pretty big flaw. I can't believe this isn't higher up in the feedback votes.

    The new message count on my Inbox folder will go up, but when I load the page, the new e-mail only shows up for a second. As soon as the page loads, a bunch of old messages begin to disappear for some reason, usually including the new message.

    Lucky for me, I keep on top of incoming messages. Some people I know have hundreds of unread messages from spam or ads or update notifications or whatever, so a new e-mail from a real person might never get their attention.

    With each new forced "upgrade" they take away at least one decent aspect of the previous version. This time they took away the chassis of this e-mail machine: the reception of e-mails. WTAF??

    5 emails today in my inbox today on Android outlook app. 4 in my Outlook web inbox. Had to refresh and select missing email then move to another folder then back to Inbox for it to show up.

    None of the solutions worked. I'll have to switch email providers if I can't get help on this immediately.
