They are lost from client & web mail. I have checked other folders.
I feel they suddenly 'departed' whilst I was using the inbox (selecting/reading/editing) - but am unsure.

Checked spam folder and bin and junk.
Nothing for this period is there.
Emails for this period that I have stored in folders are still there.

For years, she's been accessing her email in two ways:

The historical inbox emails aren't showing in either (app or browser).
Her deleted folder only shows a handful of emails (since yesterday really when the issue was noticed).
The content of her sent folder is intact (all historical emails are there).
The content of all her subfolders is intact (all historical emails are also there).
There are several threads relating to the issues of lost emails.
In my case, as the disappearance seemed to happened whilst I was using the inbox I'd already made all the checks suggested in other cases.... and
