Recover Deleted Emails
We’ve all been there: you realize that you deleted an email with important information and have already purged your trash folder. If that email was only recently deleted, you may still have a chance at bringing it back. Most major email providers now include a way to un-delete a purged email. All Microsoft email accounts (those ending in outlook.com, hotmail.com, and msn.com) have a secret “Recoverable Items” folder. Gmail has the Message Recovery Tool which is designed to help after a hacker has deleted emails but can also be used in accidental situations. AOL and Yahoo have similar functionality but you can’t do it by yourself; you must request assistance from their support team and a small fee may apply.
