I concur with Martin on that. It sounds like you either suffer from a bug or
involuntarily added a filter. It is also possible that your Registry was
modified by a rogue process to achieve this annoying behaviour. I sure know
how easy it is to insert values into the Registry -- values which directly
affect Outlook Express. I have seen that done before.

If you can't spot the error, I can only suggest that you upgrade to
Thunderbird < http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/ >. It would
import all your settings and mail data in the process of installation.
