Re: HUGE "Inbox.dbx" folder but no email messages shown - please help

Looking more closely, it appears that DBXtract recovered "most" of
my email messages. There is a chunk that is missing. So,
I tried to download the messages again from my gmail account.
However, selecting the option:
"Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded)"
does nothing. What do I need to do to download the messages again?

Try this: Close OE and delete POP3dlui.dbx from your identity's store.

NB: If you have any other POP3 accounts, doing so will cause all messages
still on those accounts' servers to be downloaded again, too.

Is there any way to download only selected accounts?

Nevermind, the answer is "yes" ...
Remove the account from OE, add it back, and then select the Gmail option:
"Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded)"

This is a good way for OE/Gmail users to recover lost OE messages if
they use the OE option:
"Leave a copy of messages on server"
