Recover Deleted E-Mail

Probably not

If you accidentally delete a piece of e-mail, or a folder, you can recover it in the Deleted items folder. If that folder has been emptied, you might have one more chance.

The following method works only on PSTs, when it works.

Things to remember:

This works under very limited circumstances
  • If the PST has begun compacting, it will likely fail
  • You're better off NOT emptying the deleted folder until you are sure you won't need the messages
  • Don't store messages in the folder unless you are sure the messages are trash
  • If, for some stupid reason you move items to the deleted folder and change your mind after emptying the Deleted Items folder, you may be able to recover the messages under very specific conditions.
