Is recovery of deleted e mail possible?

I suppose there is no way a deleted e mail can be recovered, please? A yes or no would put me out of my misery, and if there is a way kindly tell me! Today, I was too quick in deleting items in my In Box. I deleted one I now want. Thanks.

Depends on where your email is. Do you use web mail (hotmail etc.) ? Do you use Oulook? Is it Internet email or are you in a corporate envionrment?

Lots of email programs (e.g. outlook) have a "Deleted Items" folder where your delete emails will be unless you either pressed shift+delete or emptied the folder.

In a corporate environment with Exchange server in the background there are other considerations.

Hope this helps.

Sorry for appalling spelling - Oulook=Outlook and envionrment=environment!

you may be lucky enough that you have sent it only as far as your deleted folder in which case just transfer it back? other wise solutions above look good.

If your using Outlook Express then highlight your deleted items folder then go up to tools and click "Recover Deleted Items"

When I downloaded incredimail, It went back 40 E-mails when I first logged on. Try That , and then you can always delete it if you dont want it.

babybell, When you highlight deleted folder how do you get the option to 'recover deleted items' ?

Colinb1064 and all: I think I had better leave well alone, although I have installed incredimail. I don't know how one gets on with this free stuff. Do they apply after so many days to see if a person will oay up? And I don't really know what I have installed. I had better uninstal it if I can see how. I hope I haven't made a new mistake. I don't really see the point of incredimail for me. I just like a plain send/receive e mail service.
I should have said - I do not use Outlook. There was such a fuss when I bought my stuff I left it along. I send and receive by Hotmail (Classic).
Someone sent me an e mail. I'd like to see what it said but it isn't the end of the world if I don't. I think instructions are too advanced for me, anyhow. Thanks all.

Installing Thunderbird (temporarily if you wish) and importing OE e-mail folders often brings up hundreds of apparently lost or deleted e-mails.
