Default Message content replaced with "Message has not been downloaded"

Recently I opened up Outlook Express (6.0) and noticed that all of the mail
in my Inbox between the dates of 11-2-06 and 12-9-06 showed the following
message:

-------------------------------------------------
Message has not been downloaded
Outlook Express has not yet downloaded this message.

To download the message:

Click here.

Press Space.

Outlook Express
----------------------------------------
"Click here" was linked to "athcmd:download".

In addition the messages in many, but not all of my subfolders were wiped
out.

What's happening? Is there a way to get the messages back?

What kind of mail account is this?

If POP3, that would indicate a corrupted Inbox DBX file.

If HTTP (Hotmail/MSN) or IMAP, it could indicate a problem with the mail
server or connecting to it.

See if this might apply:
Authentication fails when you use Outlook or Outlook Express to try to
log
on to a HTTP-based mail server if you use Internet Explorer version 7.0:

It's POP3, so most likely a corrupt DBX file, right?

Also, I dowloaded the fix that you suggested, and while it may have fixed
the problem from happening in the future, it didn't bring my lost email back.

See:
Messages in Inbox or other mail folders disappear
http://www.insideoe.com/problems/bugs.htm#mailgone
Recovering lost messages
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#4

The fix I referenced was for problems logging into Hotmail/MSN accounts,
not for POP3.
