Default My Outlook Express has gone mad.

I switched my computer on and the following message came up so I selected Outlook express.

"An important choice to make:"

The next thing that happend my outlook express opened and it downloaded over 1,000 old messages losing my exsting Outlook Express setup.
I rememberd how to find the old setup and all was well but when I opened my outlook express this morning the same thing happend again. A load of old messages downloaded and my old Outlook Express set up with all the files disapeared.

It's possible that Outlook Express didn't finish downloading all emails due to interrupted Internet connection, huge email attachments, etc, the next time you open it, it tried to start over. If your email account has a web version, logged on to it and delete the emails on the server directly.

BTW, MS has stopped the development of Outlook Express, you may want to check out Windows Live Mail.
