Emails vanished from POP Mailbox

Today I previewed this morning's emails on my phone as I always do (POP3, with leave messages on server). When I went onto my PC to download them, the mailboxes were empty (2 mailboxes previously had mails in them). This is no different to what I do every day, nothing has been changed.

I just sent a test email to one of the accounts, downloaded it onto my phone, then could still see it and download it onto my PC. So it's now working as I expect.

Any way I can find out why they got deleted from the POP email server this morning? Anyone else got less email today than normal?

Suggestion 1.


Log into webmail.


Mark the messages as unread.


Try accessing them from your PC.
