used outlook express at home, lost emails at work

I configured outlook express via POP to view my emails at home, however i have since discovered i cannot see any of my inbox emails at work, i must have hit import messages or something. Any chance of getting these back to my LAN inbox?

I it's standard configuration, OE will download emails into your system and delete them from the server.

If you don't want them deleted from the server, go to Tools - Accounts - Properties - Advanced and tick the box "Leave a copy of messages on the server.

To get them back to your work server - Forward them to yourself from home - but do the send via Send/Recv button and choose Send All. This will send your mails but not automatically do another pickup.
