Deleted email in a folder

Deleted email in a folder

I deleted email that was in a folder and now it's gone.  It didn't go to my trash so I can't recover it.  How do I recover what I deleted?

Re: Deleted email in a folder

How long ago did you delete it?  How do you have your deletion schedule set for the Trash folder?  To check, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>>>Email>>>>>>>Email Deletion Schedules.

 

Also, right-click on the Trash folder, and in the menu that drops down click on "Recover Deleted Items".  See if it's in there.

Re: Deleted email in a folder

I deleted it about 2 hours ago.  The email from that folder didn't go into the Trash folder so I can't get it from there.  It's like it just vanished when I deleted it.  Now I need to recover all the emails.

I hit solutions by accident, I still haven't gotten any help with this.

Re: Deleted email in a folder

Did you try thr RIGHT click on the Trash Folder as Latoque suggested?  When you do that, you would then click on Recover deleted messages.  A new window will open showing the most recent deleted messages.  Look and see if you see it in that window... IF you do, click on it ot highlight it, then click on the small arrow on the top left side of the window.  A NEW window will open which allows you to move any highlighted messages back to the Inbox.
