Well, the "profile" is where all the application settings, e-mail, etc.
are stored, and there is always one there.

If you add a new profile, you can see if a bad setting in your existing
profile is causing problems, but I wouldn't expect your e-mail to show up
there, as the e-mail will (should?) be in the original profile.

I think the next step is to look in your profile directory and see if the
e-mail files are there.

By the way, do you use POP e-mail? Do you leave your messages on the server?
The way most people use e-mail, they use POP and download the messages to
their local machine. In this case, each mail "folder" will be a separate
file under your profile directory.

Are the "mail folder" files there?
