I have created a new rule in Microsoft Outlook but surprisingly all the mails which where previously in that new created rule are all lost. How do I recover the lost mails?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
Your e-mails are probably not lost, just misplaced :)
First you should take another look at your newly created rule. Is it really doing what you intended?
Then you could check your filtering in your inbox. Too often I see users who have accidently pressed some button in Outlook which then filters out all read e-mails (for example). Check the line just above your e-mails.
Have you checked all folders? Press the plus-sign next to the Inbox and see if anything happens.
Last: Have you looked in deleted items?
